Since 2008, we have been organising our own annual poetry competition, which has managed to attract close to one thousand poems written by participants from more than thirty countries. The aim of the competition is to promote the writing of this literary genre that our founder, Jesús Serra Santamans, enjoyed so much, and to reward the best talents - a mission that is increasingly difficult given the high quality of the works 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 in Catalan (a prize is awarded for each language and category). There are no other restrictions in terms of the topic or nationality, with the aim of breaking down territorial and artistic barriers.
