To promote narrative journalism in Latin America, the Escuela Móvil de Periodismo Portátil and Universidad de Guadalajara have announced the fifth edition of Las Nuevas Plumas - Concurso de Crónicas Inéditas en Español.

Each author can submit one entry, along with an autobiography that does not exceed 5,000 characters. The maximum length of the story is 20,000 characters, including spaces.

Submissions will be judged based on the narrative quality, the originality of the story and the depth of reporting.

The winning entry will be published by the contest's media sponsors. The author will also be invited to the 29th International Book Fair of Guadalajara, where he or she will receive a cash prize of US$2,000.

The submission deadline is Sept. 30.
