Puchi Award 2020

From 20 November 2019 to 23 January 2020

La Casa Encendida and Fulgencio Pimentel are pleased to present the fourth Puchi award.
The competition is open to books in any genre or form: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, novels, comics, picture books, essays, cookbooks, geography books, combinations of the above or any other type imaginable. We’re looking for one-of-a-kind book, or even a whole new kind of book.

The Puchi award will be governed by the following rules:

This competition is open to literary and graphic projects of any kind that stand out by virtue of their premise, literary and graphic quality, originality, unconventionality or mould-shattering conception. A book can contain everything and anything, and that is precisely what this contest wants: fiction and non-fiction, essays, informative literature, poetry, illustration, comics, cookbooks, geography books, combinations of the above or any other type of work.

The aim of this award is to shine a spotlight on works of the highest quality and originality.

    Puchi Award Winner 2020

    The winning project of Puchi Award 2020 is Rosie in the Jungle, by Nathan Cowdry (Brighton, 1990). Rosie in the Jungle is a graphic novel that gives new life to the most counter-cultural current in the medium, exploring its moral limits and mocking a good number of cultural, social, generational and even post-colonial conventions to emerge as a new classic.
