Creative young people aged 14-35 can enter in music, writing, photography, business and other categories

The Alicante Provincial Council has organised the 15th edition of its “Top Creation” Provincial Youth Awards and there are over €20,000 in cash prizes to be won in six different categories.

The categories are: business initiative, blogs, music (solo or as a group), short story, photography and educational initiative.

It is open to young people aged 14-35 from Alicante Province and the closing date for entries is August 16th.

The slogan for this year is “Demuestra que se equivocan” (Show them they’re wrong), using topics that are frequently used to refer to young people, such as “Young people spend all day taking selfies and glued to their mobiles”, “Young people have no idea how to write because they don’t read anymore”, or “Young people are only interested in partying”, amongst others.

In recent years Torrevieja has produced a few winners and finalists, like the singer Shani Ormiston in 2012 or Soul Dance, who won last year for business initiative and will perform at the prize giving gala this year in Ibi.

Anyone interested can find more information from their local Town Hall Youth Department (Concejalia de Juventud) and the website
