The Marcel Pagnol short story contest is organized by the association of friends of the Marcel Pagnol Museum and the City of Allauch.

It is therefore quite natural that the “Marcel Pagnol Short Story Contest” took place in Allauch on Saturday, January 15th, 2022, in partnership with the Figaro newspaper and the region’s media. The creation of such a nationwide event is in line with the future Pagnol Museum, which will soon be set up in the village within the Electric Factory.
250 candidates from all over France and even from abroad took part in the “Marcel Pagnol Short Story Contest” in Allauch, a great success for this1st edition.
