The Sociedad Geográfica Española (SGE) with the collaboration of the Asociación Española de Geografía (AGE) announce the First LiteraTerra Prize for geographical literary essay, which was born with the purpose of stimulating and recognising non-fiction literary creation inspired by the territory and the landscape, through the distinction and publication of unpublished original works. They are intended to promote knowledge of the Earth in all its facets, to raise awareness about the processes that take place there and about the need to preserve and respect it, as well as to recognise the value of geography as a scientific discipline responsible for its study.
The winning work will be awarded € 2,000 and will be published by geoPlaneta, a label specialised in geography and travel from Grupo Planeta.
The award is for unpublished works, originally written in Spanish, with a length of a minimum of 250,000 characters with space and a maximum of 350,000, approximately.
The deadline for submission of works ends on April 25, 2021.
