Fundación Jesús Serra Poetry Competition has been running since 2008 and has managed to attract as many as a thousand poems, written by participants from more than twenty countries. Through this initiative we aim to reward the best talent, both of young and adult poetry; a mission that is increasingly difficult given the high quality of the work received.

Participants present their candidacy to one of the three categories according to their age —A (between ten and thirteen years), B (between fourteen and seventeen) and C (starting from eighteen) —, and the only requirement to enter is that the poems are written in Spanish or Catalan (a prize is awarded for each language and category). There are no other restrictions in terms of the topic or nationality. The poetry competition is not only aimed at boosting talent, but also to help eliminate territorial and artistic barriers.
