2015 LletrA Prize
The Fundació Prudenci Bertrana (Prudenci Bertrana Foundation) and the Open University of Catalonia are pleased to announce this Prize which aims to bring attention to the best digital initiative for promoting the pleasure of reading in Catalan and publicising Catalan authors and their works online.
This initiative may be individual or the result of a joint project carried out by people working in the spheres of culture, education and technology, from any country and in any language. The work, which may be submitted in any digital format and using any digital support (or mixed-mode digital/face-to-face environment), must have been completed between 2014 and 2015.
When judging entries, particular attention will be given to sustainable and innovative application of IT to promotion of reading in Catalan and teaching-learning of Catalan writers and their works, the originality of the idea, creativity in conception and design, the designers’ previous experience in applying IT to culture and teaching, and the real impact of the project in terms of the original aims.
Entries should be submitted by means of the form which may be found on the LletrA Prize web page. The deadline for presentation of entries is 5 September 2015.
The organisers reserve the right to change the composition of the jury in case of illness, absence or other kinds of impediment affecting any of its members. This change can only take place up to thirty days before the winning project is announced.
Full acceptance of these guidelines and rules and the concomitant rights and duties is required as a condition for submitting entries for this prize.
