The Princess of Asturias Foundation has now opened the Call for Nominations for the 2018 Princess of Asturias Awards. It has started to send out the publication containing the Call and the Regulations for the Awards, in what will now be their thirty-eight edition. The publication is already available on the Foundation’s website (www.fpa.es) in Spanish, English, French, German and Portuguese.

The Regulations establish that the following may submit nominations for the different Princess of Asturias Award categories: laureates from previous editions, those public figures and institutions invited to do so by the Foundation, Spanish embassies, diplomatic representations in Spain, members of the eight Juries, provided they do not submit nominations for the Award in the category corresponding to the jury of which they are a member, and other public figures and institutions of renown.

Also on the Internet

Nominations may be submitted by mail, at the institution’s head office and by email fpa@fpa.es(fpa@fpa.es). Abundant information about the institution, its history, activities, Laureates, etc., is also available in a number of different languages on the Foundation’s website.

Princess of Asturias Awards

There are eight Princess of Asturias Awards: the Arts, Social Sciences, Communication and Humanities, Concord, International Cooperation, Sports, Technical and Scientific Research and Literature. As stated in the Statutes of the Foundation, they are aimed “at rewarding the scientific, technical, cultural, social and humanitarian work carried out at an international level by individuals, institutions or groups of individuals or institutions”.

The deadline for submitting nominations ends on 14th March 2018. Each Princess of Asturias Award has its own Jury, composed of specialists in the areas under consideration. The Jury for the Award for Concord consists mainly of members of the Boards of Trustees of the Foundation.

The formal Awards Ceremony is traditionally held in autumn at the Campoamor Theatre in Oviedo, the capital of the Principality of Asturias. Each Princess of Asturias Award comprises a Joan Miró sculpture representing and symbolising the Award, a cash prize of €50,000, a diploma and an insignia bearing the Foundation’s coat of arms.
