The Prince of Asturias Awards 2006

http://www.fundacionprincipedeasturi...oticia490.html

THE CALL FOR THE 2006 PRINCE OF ASTURIAS AWARDS NOW OPEN
The Prince of Asturias Foundation has begun distribution of the pamphlet containing the official announcement for candidatures and rules for the 2006 Prince of Asturias Awards. Thus, the period for presenting candidatures for these Awards - which are all international in scope and which are now being held for the twenty-sixth time - is open. This pamphlet is sent to research centres, academies, universities, the diplomatic corps and major figures world-wide.

Thousands of pamphlets are mailed in Spain and distributed by special courier service elsewhere.

There are eight Prince of Asturias Awards: Communications and Humanities, the Arts, Letters, Social Sciences, Technical and Scientific Research, International Cooperation, Sports and Concord. They are intended, to quote the Foundations Statutes, "to reward the scientific, technical, cultural, social and humanistic work performed by individuals, groups, or institutions world-wide."

The deadline for proposing candidates is March 15th 2006. This date is extended till July 28th for the Concord and Sports Awards.

Each of the Prince of Asturias Awards has its own jury, made up of specialists in the area, with the exception of the Concord Award jury, which is made up of the Patrons of the Prince of Asturias Foundation.

Since the Prince of Asturias Awards were inaugurated in 1981 they have acquired considerable international prestige. The grand presentation ceremony is traditionally held in Autumn at the Campoamor Theatre in Oviedo, the capital of the Principality of Asturias. It is presided over by H.R.H. the Prince of Asturias, and is attended by outstanding figures from national and international social and cultural circles.

Each of the eight Prince of Asturias Awards comprises of a symbolic emblem - a Joan Miró statue - a cash prize of Euro 50,000, an insignia bearing the Foundation´s arms, and a diploma.

BILL AND MELINDA GATES, 2006 PRINCE OF ASTURIAS AWARD FOR INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION
Bill and Melinda Gates have been given the 2006 Prince of Asturias Award for International Cooperation. The Jury for the Award announced its decision today in Oviedo.

Bill and Melinda Gates, considered to be the world´s biggest philanthropists, have donated over ten billion dollars over the last five years to development projects and programmes to fight illnesses like malaria and Aids that have ravaged our planet´s most deprived areas.

(...)
The Gates founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2000. The Foundation targets four areas: global health, education, libraries and Northwest Pacific, and is outstanding for the large donations it makes to a range of causes: 50 million dollars to the Global Fund to fight Aids and 750 million dollars to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization. During the January 2006 Davos Forum, Bill Gates announced a further donation of 500 million dollars to the Global Plan to stop Tuberculosis, to be increased to 900 million in 2016. Furthermore, they provide essential funding alongside the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for research to find a vaccine against malaria, which kills over 3,000 people a day. The vaccine may be available as early as 2010. The Gates were named 'Personalities of the Year' alongside Irish singer Bono by Time Magazine.

When Felipe becomes the King, and Leonor the Princess of Asturias, will the name of the awards be changed for Premios Princesa de Asturias? Or will it remain unchanged just us Princess (not Queen) Sofia Awards (in sailing in Mallorca)?

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY, 2006 PRINCE OF ASTURIAS AWARD FOR COMMUNICATIONS AND HUMANITIES.




National Geographic Society has been given the 2006 Prince of Asturias Award for Communications and Humanities. The Jury for the Award announced its decision today in Oviedo.

For over a century, the National Geographic Society has played a key role as a pioneer in disseminating scientific knowledge and in publicising not only the conservation of the planet's natural resources but also mankind's historical, geographic and artistic heritage. It has provided support to over 8,000 scientific research projects and explorations on all five continents in the course of its existence.

The Jury for the award -convened by the Prince of Asturias Foundation- was chaired by Manuel Olivencia, and comprised of Carmen Alborch, Lluis Xabel Álvarez, Ignacio Bayón, Raúl Bocanegra, Alejandro Echevarría, Javier Gómez Cuesta, Javier González Ferrari, José Luis Gutiérrez, Manuel Lombardero, Ramón López Vilas, Catalina Luca de Tena, Jaime Montalvo Correa, Beatriz de Moura, Elena Ochoa, Pedro Páramo, Alberto Pico, José Antonio Sánchez, Ricardo Senabre, Jesús de la Serna, Enrique Ybarra y Juan Luis Iglesias Prada (secretario).

The National Geographic Society is one of the world´s leading scientific and educational organisations. With its five magazines, television channel, documentaries, films, radio programmes, books, videos, maps and interactive media, it is received by over three hundred million people a month. The National Geographic magazine, the society´s official paper, is published in English and twenty-eight other languages and has a circulation worldwide of over 8.8 million copies. Other reviews published by National Geographic, such as National Geographic Traveller, National Geographic Adventure, National Geographic Kids y National Geographic Explorer are read by over 11.5 million readers. The Society has also published over two thousand texts in thirty-two languages since it published its first book in 1907, as well as editing over 150 books a year. Its international television channel is broadcast to over 230 million families in 163 countries in 27 languages.

The National Geographic Society was founded in Washington, USA, in 1888 and its first president was Gardiner Greene Hubbard, a lawyer, banker and philanthropist who gave backing for the experiments of his son-in-law, Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone. The first issue of National Geographic was published nine months after the society was launched, though it was a very different kind of scientific review to the regularly-published, glossy magazine that it has become over time. National Geographic has provided funding for almost 8,000 scientific research and exploration projects, ranging from Hiram Bingham´s expedition to Machu Pichu to Dian Fossey´s studies of gorillas in the mountains of Ruanda and the fossil discoveries of Paul Sereno on several continents. It is at present involved in over 500 expeditions and research projects in different parts of the world.

PEDRO ALMODOVAR, 2006 PRINCE OF ASTURIAS AWARD FOR ARTS
Pedro Almodovar has been given the 2006 Prince of Asturias Award for Arts. The Jury for the Award announced its decision today in Oviedo.

His work, rooted in a Spanish society which was opening itself to profound changes, has acquired a universal dimension through original language with great expressive richness, able to summarize human complexities.

The Jury for the award -convened by the Prince of Asturias Foundation- was chaired by José Lladó y Fernández-Urrutia, and comprised of José Luis Álvarez, Fernando Argenta, Juan Cruz, Fernando Delgado, Isabel Falabella, Jorge Fernández Bustillo, José Luis Garci, Guillermo García-Alcalde, Jordi García Candau, Rosina Gómez-Baeza, Luis Hernando, Carlos Madera, Miguel Muñiz, Benigno Pendás García, Juan Ramón Pérez las Clotas, Rodrigo Uría Meruéndano, Amelia Valcárcel, José Velasco y José Antonio Caicoya (secretary).

Pedro Almodovar, one of Spain's most internationally acclaimed filmmakers, was born in Calzada de Calatrava, Ciudad Real in 1951. He moved to Madrid in 1967, where he found sporadic work as an actor. After passing a State examination to become a civil servant, he joined Spain's National Telephone Company as a clerk, combining his work with his cinema pursuits. He made a number of short films between 1974 and 1978 and also spent the seventies involved in the theatre, music and writing for reviews. He made his first feature film, Pepi, Luci, Bom in 1980. The film was not only controversial and provocative but also a success, which enabled him to leave his job in the telephone company to work full-time in the cinema. In 1985 he launched a production company called El deseo with his brother Agustín, and has since produced his own and other directors' films.
