Mission and Objectives

Premios de Ensayo Casa África

Casa África each year organises its Essay Prizes on African issues, with which it hopes to recognise, encourage and disseminate original and unpublished essays which will contribute to a better knowledge of the African continent.

The subject varies every year and the subject chosen for 2015 invites to reflect on the challenges facing the African continent in terms of SECURITY and to the opportunities the search for it offers to governments, civil societies, supranational institutions and the private sector. Casa África’s intention is to open up the call to all possible aspects from which this topic can be approached, including everything from conflicts and issues of defense and police security, to legal certainty, as well as the economic and financial fields, food security, health, piracy and terrorism, cyber security or trafficking.

This invitation is open to any physical person over 18 years old of any nationality and resident in any country but that has no working and/or professional relationship with Casa África, nor any of the organisations that make it up (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Spanish Agency of International Development Cooperation, Government of the Canary Islands, and Town Council of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria). The winners of the previous editions may also not participate.

Only one essay per author will be accepted, although the same essay may be written by several authors.

One single prize for an amount of 2,000 euros will be awarded together with the publication of the winning work within the Casa África's Essay Collection

The essays should be original, unpublished and should not have won a prize or be pending a decision in other competitions or contests and can be presented in Spanish, English, French or Portuguese.

Participate in this 2015 edition.
