Princess of Asturias Awards

The most important awards

Princess of Asturias Awards

After the commemoration of the 25th anniversary in 2005, the Foundation which administers these prizes, received its most international support: the support by UNESCO which recognizes the extraordinary contribution of the Princess of Asturias Awards, to the whole cultural and Humankind patrimony.

Some intellectuals and other world known wise people refer to these prices as the most important cultural ceremony in the world. Many candidatures come to Asturias from the five continents every year. The increasing prestige of these awards is due to an open and democratic procedure by which all candidatures are assessed equally as well as the solidarity spirit and humanizing aim of these prices. Every candidate opting for one out of the eight Awards is represented by Academies, Cultural and Search Centres, Universities and Institutions all around the world. This Foundation also distributes to the five continents the Official Meeting and Rules for these awards, enriching even more the selection process and guaranteeing all the merits of the awarded.
