Applications for Puchi Award 2021 are open. Puchi Award is a publishing project by La Casa Encendida and Fulgencio Pimentel which seeks the most innovative, groundbreaking, vibrant book proposals in any genre, focusing entirely on their boldness and their links with present-day art languages. The aim of this award is to shine a spotlight on works of the highest quality and originality.


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 mold-shattering conception. All authors of legal age from Spain or any other country are eligible to submit one or more original, unpublished works.

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 winner will receive a cash prize of €8,000 (VAT and all other taxes included, as an advance on the rights of the published work) and have his/her work published and distributed by Fulgencio Pimentel.


  • Projects must be submitted via the form posted on La Casa Encendida website.
  • Contestants may submit only finished works that have never been published; at least not with an ISBN and/or for commercial distribution.
  • La Casa Encendida and Fulgencio Pimentel will have the final say regarding the design and production aspects of the book.
  • Projects must be accompanied by either the pseudonym or real name of the author (or authors, in the case of collaborative works).


Each application must include:

  • A completed entry form
  • A curriculum vitae (one for each author)
  • National ID, foreign resident ID or passport
  • Brief summary of the work and statement of motivation (max. 2,000 characters with spaces)
  • List of production requirements, if any (max. 1,000 characters with spaces)
  • Finished work or in original language (PDF or Word document).
  • Provisional translation into English of at least two pages of the work.
