The Casa África Essay Competition is now open to all writers over the age of 18, of any nationality domiciled in any country in the world. For the 12 consecutive years, Casa África is holding the Casa África Prizes for Essays on African Themes, with a view to recognizing, promoting and publicising original and unpublished essays that enhance the knowledge that people have of the African continent.

Competition Theme:-

  • Climate change is one of the great challenges of the 21st century. In fact, it could probably be the most urgent and multidimensional challenge the world faces actually.

  • Climate change and all its manifestations result in displacement of people, forced migration, poverty and conflict. All of these realities are especially hard on África, the continent that contributes the least to climate change and suffers it the most. 

  • For this reason, Casa África has decided to dedicate the twelfth edition of its essay prize to climate change, its effects on the African continent, future trends and, especially, the way in which this threat is being fought.

  • Essays must be original, unpublished and they must not have won any prizes or be pending the final ruling in other events or competitions.

  • Participants must guarantee that there are no third-party rights over the essays presented, and they shall be liable for all and any claims that may arise in this respect.


  • You must be over 18 years old to participate.
  • Only one essay per author will be accepted, but a single essay may be signed by several authors, in which case, each of them must present the requested documentation.

Essays Specifications:-

  • The essays may be presented in any of the following languages: Spanish, English, French or Portuguese.
  • The essay cannot be less than 15,000 or more than 20,000 words (excluding bibliography), and they must be written in Word Arial 12 Format and double spaced.
  • Essays must be presented unsigned and they will only be identified by the title of the work and whatever pseudonym each author may decide to use. 
  • Both the title of the essay and the pseudonym must appear on every page of the essay and pages must be numbered. 
  • Any signed essays will not be accepted for the competition.


  • A single prize of €2,000 shall be awarded. 
  • Payment of the prize shall be subject to the Spanish tax legislation in effect at the time that said payment is made, irrespective of the fiscal residence of the winning author or authors.
