Who may enter
The competition is open to writers and illustrators 18 years or over.

Entrants must present two double-spaced copies of the written text and one colour photocopie of three finished illustrations. They must also include a mock-up of the complete work showing how these illustrations and the text will be laid out as well as the layout of any other illustrations which should, at the very least, be sketched out. 

Submissions must be written in Spanish. 

Works must be previously unpublished and must not be entered in any other competition at the same time.

Entry fee
The competition is free to enter.

The winner will receive € 11,000.
