Together with my thanks for your involvement with the César Egido Serrano Foundation and with many of its activities, I would like to inform you that a jury composed of 21 Ambassadors accredited in Spain, has selected the winner from among the finalists.
This is one of the initiatives made by the César Egido Serrano Fundación to publicise its objective, which is none other than to use the word as a tool for coexistence between different faiths and cultures and against all violence.
This year we have had a large turnout, with more countries than ever participating, 119 countries and 22.571 writings. The Flash fictions have been presented in Spanish, English, Arabic and Hebrew, inducing thereby, a spirit of International harmony between cultures.
The winner of the first prize of $20,000 is Armando Macchia from Argentina with his story "The Sniper".
The runners up are:
In English language, Daniel Moreau, from Chicago, USA with his story “The Old Patient”.
In Arabic language, Tarek Emam, for the story "An eye", from Cairo, Egypt.
In Hebrew language, Yinon Tal, for the Story 'Freedom' from Israel.
As each year we will edit a book with the 300 finalists in which are included the 36 jury members consisting of the ambassadors that you know, the end result has been issued.
