It is presided over by H.R.H. the Prince of Asturias, accompanied by H.R.H. the Princess of Asturias and is attended by outstanding figures from national and international social and cultural circles.

No, I don't think so. Last year was a milestone, the silver anniversary- 25 years and that is special. This year is just like any other year, they didn't do with the 22nd, 23rd, 24th and so on.

Edit: Sorry, I meant the 2006 awards is the 25th year, not last year- this year is already the 27th.

The Youth and Children Orchestras of Venezuela, 2008 Prince of Asturias Award for Arts

The National Network of Youth and Children Orchestras of Venezuela, founded by José Antonio Abreu in 1975 stand out, aside from their cultural contribution, for their outstanding technical skills and artistic quality. It has also become an exceptional social and educational movement contributing to the diffusion of art. More than 15,000 teachers of different nationalities participate in this network, having taught more than 600,000 young students and children from across the country, paying special attention to those with fewer economic resources. The success of this System foresaw the appointment of Maestro Abreu as Special Ambassador for the development and promotion of the Venezuelan model throughout the world by UNESCO.

as much as i like ingrid and felt bad during her kidnapping, i doubt she is a good candidate for a price such as the nobel peace prize or the prince of asturias. being kidnapped is not something she chose and is definitely not something that has a direct impact in the end of the FARC. now, if she decided to engage in activities to promote dialogue or to free the other people in the jungle and showed change by her activities in the next couple of years, that would be worth of a prize, in my opinion. i'm disappointed that the other candidates to the prize, who worked hard to achieve peace and wellbeing of people during years, are seeing their candidatures being left out. it's obvious the prince of asturias foundation wants to attract press and hype to the prizes and ingrid seemed to be the perfect way of doing so.

I agree with you. The time span from the moment of her release to this point of giving her the prize is just too short to fully establish if the peace and social change that they were campaigning had really been achieved. It was a triumph that she was freed, yes, but that doesn't equate to bringing peace. FARC is still in Colombia, after all.

The same also goes for Rafa Nadal. While I felt like crying when he finally broke through and won Wimbledon, he is not yet even into the prime of his career. It's a bit premature to give him the award, I think. He still has many years ahead, and I'd better appreciate it if he was given the award when he has retired after solid years of playing top tennis.

Letizia looks like she may be reading something. I tend not to smile like a maniac when I'm in a car either.

carlota 10-23-2008 12:33 PM

gorgeous pictures. it seemed like such a fun event. it must be such a nice experience to come back to your old school and meet the people again!

letizia's outfit is simply perfect. it's perhaps one of my favourites as of lately. the grey skirt and the purple shirt was a perfect match and looked beautiful with the coat when going outdoors.

REPORTAGE PHOTOS : Letizia d’Espagne doit-elle son look à... Carla Bruni ?

In this article they compare Princess Letizia with Carla Bruni! They say that the princess takes example on Carla concerning her look because Carla often wears grey and purple! and they say it's nice because both women are elegant and beautiful so it's ok if they inspire each other concerning fashion!

What a bizarre comment. All I could see is her looking down. She could be reading something (ex. phone messagings, she was often seen checking messagings during the breaks) or taking a nap, still a long day to go with 12 audiences and a concert :cool:.

To me these are the most interesting pictures. It shows how royalty interacts with the common people. What they wear to these events are secondary.

Fantastic pictures! Both the Prince and the Princess look radiant. I always love the see the fantastic turnout and how warmly received they are wherever they go. They clearly enjoy this annual date in Asturias as evidenced by these great pictures. Their busy schedule is really amazing and obviously reflect the wide scope of these very prestigious Awards.
