Presentation of the prize

The Generalitat of Catalonia created the Premi Internacional Catalunya in 1989, with three clear objectives: to recognize and stimulate excellence in creativity, to bring to the Catalan people models of the highest quality and exigency in all aspects of culture, and to establish a place for Catalonia in the arena of the great international awards.

The prize, worth 80,000 euros and the sculpture "The key and the letter" of Antoni Tàpies, is given annually to persons who made key contributions to the development of cultural, scientific or human values. Institutions from all over the world and the members of the jury may propose candidates, in accordance with the bases published every year in the call of the award.
