You have time until Friday, November 10. The first place will be awarded with the adaptation of their micro-story in audiovisual version, two tickets to the face-to-face event A night in the Peni that will be on November 24, a book of If the walls of the Peni spoke by the author Gloria Bejarano and a souvenir of the Penitentiary Museum.
