The César Egido Serrano Foundation has been hosting  the International Prize for microfiction since 2009.

In the IV Edition, 149 countries participated, with a total of 35,609 microfictions that competed for the main prize. The stories were presented in Spanish, English, Arabic and Hebrew.

Argentina had the most participants with a of over 8,000 stories submitted, followed by Spain and the United States.

In the last edition English language entries increased exponentially, reaching more than 8,000 stories. Among English sparking countries the United States had more than a third of the entries in this language, followed by Australia and the United Kingdom with a high turnout. Participation has also greatly increased among the Arabic and Hebrew entries.

The theme was "Mandela: Words and Concorde", very much in consonance with the philosophy and the goals of the Cesar Egido Serrano Foundation, which is that words are the tool of coexistence between different cultures and religions. The winning contestant in the language of the four admitted languages (Spanish, English, Arabic and Hebrew), is awarded with $ 20,000.

The runners-up in the remaining categories are awarded with $ 2,000 each. The finalist stories are compiled in an Anthology of which there are four previous editions.
