    Description

    With the intention of creating a space for all the participants of the "Recuentos UDP (Diego Portales University Re-Stories)" contest to meet, the awards ceremony was held at the university's Nicanor Parra Library. The activity was attended by graduates, family and friends of the winners of the first three places and the honourable mentions of this literary contest organised by Egresados UDP.

    More than 75 micro stories were received from graduates who remembered their time at UDP. The panel was composed of Guido Arroyo (graduate of the Escuela Literatura Creativa, storyteller and founder of Alquimia publishing house), José Ignacio Silva (graduate of the School of Journalism and literary critic of Las Últimas Noticias), and Rodrigo Rojas (UDP academic).

    First place in the competition went to Leonardo Arriagada, a graduate in General Basic Education, who received a Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet (Samsung) for his story "El semáforo más largo del mundo" (The longest traffic light in the world). Upon learning the result of the competition, Leonardo highlighted the possibility of remembering his time at the university, a place of study for which he has a special affection.
