The purpose of the contest is to promote knowledge and perfection of the Arabic language by reading Spanish classics translated into Arabic, among undergraduate, double degree and graduate students at schools and in departments at public and private universities in Spain devoted to the study of Arabic Philology, Arabic Language and Culture and Translation and Interpretation where Arabic is taught as a B, C or D language.
