It carries the name of Germán Rozenmacher (Buenos Aires, 1936 - Mar del Plata, 1971) as a tribute to the great playwright and short-story writer, author of Réquiem para un viernes a la noche and Cabecita negra. Its aim is to encourage the production from Argentinian authors, or authors based in Argentina, who haven’t yet turned 36.
