After the success of the first call, the cultural organization Joventuts Musicals de Catalunya and the music and record publisher Ficta Edicions i Produccions, SL are convening a second edition of the biannual international music essay prize. This competition is held every two years and has the deliberate nature of a grant for the writing of an essay in which the author or subject is Catalan. Musical essay projects written from any perspective, discipline or scientific field will be eligible for this award. The author of the winning project will have one year to write the essay that will be published in the last quarter of 2024. The prize is endowed with €3,000 and the publication of the essay.
Proposals can be submitted online until September 30, 2022 and in addition to the essay project (with the outline or index) candidates must present an unpublished article on the subject or an aspect of the subject that is the subject of the future essay. This article will serve to assess the author's ability to combine academic rigor with a vocation to inform, the ability to articulate a solid and coherent discourse and the literary quality of the writing.
