The prize in each category will be 1,000 euros. The winning texts will be published online, specifically, the popular essays in Jot Down and the narrative texts in Mercurio magazine. The winning illustration and photograph (or series of photographs) will be published in Jot Down's print magazines (Jot Down or Jot Down kids) and/or in Mercurio magazine. The finalists will receive a prize of a one-year subscription to Jot Down + Mercurio Magazine and a set of books, as well as the publication of the texts.
