Narrative, Poetry and Graphic Novel Competitions at BRMU


The winners of the following calls promoted by Culture will have the opportunity to publish with the regional editor Tres Fronteras

The Ministry of Culture promotes the creation of three literary competitions related to the Regional Library of Murcia (BRMU): BRMU Short Story, BRMU Graphic Novel and BRMU Poetry. With them, the aim is “to promote an active attitude towards literature and to promote the creative spirit among the citizens of the region and the country as a whole”.

These competitions are part of a multi-year plan for literary competitions promoted by the BRMU and in this sense a new subsidy line has been included in the Strategic Subsidy Plan of the Ministry of Culture led by Marcos Ortuño. According to the order collected in the Official Gazette of the Region of Murcia (BORM) on November 30, the awards will consist of the economic endowment established in the respective order of the call based on the budget appropriations available for each year.

Likewise, the work may be published by the regional publisher Tres Fronteras, for which Francisco Giménez Gracia is responsible, unless the beneficiary chooses to publish through another private publisher, without incurring a cost to the regional administration.

The works will be presented in Spanish and will be strictly unpublished. Works previously awarded, recognized or selected in other calls, competitions, festivals or similar events will not be accepted.

In addition, they will have to be led by a title, will be their own and original authorship, and will be signed with a pseudonym, not being able to contain any identifying information of their author or author. The concession procedure will be conducted on the basis of competitive bids.

The works submitted to the competitions will be judged by a jury based on the criteria of creativity, originality and literary quality, the scale of which will be specified in the various corresponding calls for each of the three categories.

The prizes cannot be awarded to more than one work in the ‘ex aequo’ modality. Without prejudice to the specific eligibility requirements set out in the corresponding calls, the following generally applies: each author or author may only present one work in each call, under no circumstances will works by more than one author or author be accepted. .

On the other hand, those who are listed as potential prize winners by the jury in the report prior to the draft decision stating the result of the evaluation, at the request of the examining body and provided that the administration has not authorized to consult these points, certificates issued by the competent authorities certifying that they are aware of their tax obligations for the General Administration of the State and the corresponding Autonomous Community and for the social security system, in accordance with current regulations.

The body in charge of evaluating the works will be a jury including the head of the BRMU management, today in the hands of Juanjo Lara.

The Murcia City Council presented a few days ago in Madrid the creation of the Ramón Gaya Short Novel Award, endowed with 30,000 euros.
