Catalonia International Prize

cultural prize given by the state of Catalonia

The Catalonia International Prize (Catalan: Premi Internacional Catalunya) is a Spanish international prize, awarded every year since 1989 by the Generalitat de Catalunya. The award recognizes the work of people who have not only contributed to the development of culture, science or economics, but have also stood out for having completed their work with a high ethical and humanistic commitment. Institutions and organizations from all over the world present candidates every year, usually exceeding 200 people. A large jury, composed of various personalities from various fields, and independent of the Generalitat, determine the award winneer. The prize is only given to living people, and cannot be awarded posthumously. Four times (1995, 2004, 2008, and 2013) the award has been shared by two people. The prize is presented at the beginning of March by the President of the Government of Catalonia and consists of an economic endowment (in 2005 it was 80,000 euros) and a work of art.
