Short Story Contest 2020 “Censorship” – Release

08 of January to 30 of April of 2020
@ Aljube Museum Resistance and Freedom

Short Story Contest (15-18 years and> 18)

We remind you that the 3rd edition of the Contest of Tales is taking place, this time under the theme “Censorship”. We are pleased to note that it has had an enormous adhesion, which we cannot fail to point out and thank.

We inform that, due to the current situation, the deadlines will be extended, so it seemed pertinent to challenge all friends and all interested parties to participate in this contest again, even as an exercise for those who are forced to stay at home.

Being a complex theme, we propose subthemes for more targeted approaches:

1. How I rode Censorship.

2. They censored me this scene from the last movie. These guys are stupid!

3. Before writing this scene from the last play, I already imagined that they would censor it. No matter, one day will pass when there is no censorship.

4. Did you understand my text? He went in big disguises.

5. I write to you here from Tete. We here, all well…

We will be available for all clarifications, if you need concursodecontos@museudoaljube.pt or juditealvares@egeac.pt

We’re here!
