About this opportunity

Casa África launches the tenth edition of Purorrelato, its micro-story contest that aims to promote literary creation that encourages us to feel and think about Africa and to continue showing different realities that approach us to the continent, away from the stereotypes that have marked it for so long.


• 1st Prize:  €750
• 2nd Prize:  €375
• 3rd Prize:  €225


The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18. 

The theme is free, although the micro-stories should be related to Africa in some way. The story could take place inside or outside the continent and its degree of relation with Africa could range from a detail to the total protagonism of the story.

The micro-stories could be submitted in Spanish, English, French or Portuguese, with a maximum length of 1500 characters including spaces and excluding the title.

Entries must not have been previously published.
