Michael Jacobs Travel Writing Prize is run jointly by the Gabriel García Márquez Foundation for New Iberoamerican Journalism-FNPI- and the Hay Festival Cartagena de Indias.

This time around the winner will be selected taking into consideration narrative quality and journalistic depth. The prize is a homage to the legacy of Michael Jacobs and seeks to promote travel writing in Hispanoamerica and Spain.

For Michael Jacobs, travel writing went beyond simple anecdotal experience, and for this reason what will be valued are contributions that can make an impression and that open readers’ minds, taking as a reference Spain and all the countries of Hispanoamerica.
