Ortega y Gasset Awards

Created in 1984 by the newspaper El País, these awards are named after the Spanish philosopher and journalist José Ortega y Gasset. The prize honours work published in Spanish worldwide, recognizing, in particular, work that champions human rights, independence, rigor, curiosity and passion: in short all the hallmarks of excellent journalism.

The jury is made up of leading figures from the media as well as from social and cultural life and the world of business. Each award is worth 15,000 euros in prize money and is accompanied by a work by sculptor Eduardo Chillida.
