MIJAS Town Hall has launched two contests during the confinement with which the residents will be able to express their creative and artistic talents: one for photography and the other for short stories.
The short story contest ‘Letras en la Distancia’ will have three categories: children up to 12 years old, young people up to 18 years old, and adults. Thus, the winners of the children’s category will be awarded a batch of children’s books, while young people and adults can enjoy the creative writing course at the Universidad Popular from September to June. The winners will also be published in the local media, while the jury’s decision will be announced on May 29.
Those interested in participating in this contest, which is open until May 9, should send their story to email@example.com where they can also request more information.
Lovers of photography have an opportunity to express themselves through the initiative ‘Mijas, con Otra Mirada.’ Those interested are invited to take snapshots from their homes during confinement. The works must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and only one photo per participant will be admitted. All photos will be published on the Mijas Facebook profile and the 10 most voted until the end of the State of Alarm will be awarded.
On the other hand, the photographer Jerómino Alba will give on May 4 and 8 an online workshop on Introduction to Photography for 18 participants for free, through the Culture area of Mijas. Registrations can be made in the email: email@example.com.
