Selection of co-edition publication projects with Barcelona City Council

A new period for submitting co-edition publication projects with Barcelona City Council is open from 10 to 31 January 2023. Proposals will have to take Barcelona and its residents as their reference and fall within the framework of the ten collections approved by the Editions and Publications Board itself on 7 April 2021. If they are not part of any of these collections, the collection from the publishing house that the edition is proposed in must be stated.

Co-editions with the private publishing sector are established to contribute towards a better use, dissemination and promotion of publications. In addition, they are also used for establishing a framework of collaboration with the publishing sector and providing it with support.
