TEMAS Essay Award 2007
With the distinction of "making the knowledge that turns into culture", this Award is intended to stimulate reflection on problems of art and literature, social sciences and humanistic studies, political theory and ideology- that is to say, culture in its broadest and most fundamental sense- in keeping with the thematic spectrum of Temas Magazine.
1. The Award summons essays from two subject areas with equal regard: Social Sciences and Art & Literature Studies.
2. Authors from any nationality may participate, regardless of their country of residence.
3. Essays should be unpublished, and written in Spanish, Portuguese, French, or English. They should not be in line to be published, nor should they have already received awards in other competitions.
4. Essays should contain no more than 57,000 characters, including notes and bibliographic references.
5. Authors who are Cuban residents should send an electronic copy and three printed copies with numbered pages, and must explicitly state in which subject area they will be competing. Authors who are not Cuban residents may send their work by e-mail to [email protected]. In all cases authors must identify themselves with a pseudonym or other representative name, which must be included apart from the authors name and personal information. All essays will be presented to the judges anonymously.
6. Temas will award one indivisible prize for each thematic category, in the form of $1,000 USD and publication of the essay in Temas magazine. Honorable mention will be given to those chosen by the judges, without implying monetary compensation or promise of publication.
