The deadline for sending the works is 13 January 2022.
The works will be evaluated in successive stages by various juries, selected by the Management Committee of the Campiello Prize. In the second half of April 2022 the names of the five finalists will be announced and their works will be collected in a book edited by the Campiello Foundation.
The finalists will receive a selection of books and an invitation to the Campiello Prize award ceremony. The winner will be entitled to a two-week study holiday in a European country.
Two special mentions will be awarded:
- to a story that deals with issues related to environmental and/or social sustainability
- to a travel-themed story.
This year, there will be also a special mention for young entrepreneurs, aimed at rewarding the best story that, through the protagonists or the setting, describes and narrates the business culture, in particular that of young people or women.
