Aspiring culture-oriented projects designed for the promotion of the Catalan language, arts and thought may be presented up until the 25th of March, 2015
In the thirty-eight-year history of the Lluís Carulla Prize, former winners have included the likes of Josep Trueta, Joan Traidú and, more recently, Carme Ruscalleda, Isona Passola and Paul Preston.
Established in 1973 by Catalan entrepreneur and cultural patron, Lluís Carulla, the purpose of the foundation that bears his name, and which was formerly known as the Jaume I Foundation, is to offer recognition to the efforts of individuals and organisations who have fostered the modernisation of Catalan culture and society in the areas of language, art and thought. Other beneficiaries of the award, which is now open for entries, include organisations such as the Catalan Culture Institute (IEC), the Balearic Culture Association (OCB), the Scientific Expedition Centre of Catalonia (CEC), La Bressola (a Catalan culture association founded in Perpignan, France) and the Joan Maragall Foundation.
Aspirants for the award, which is open to individuals, businesses and non-profit organisations, are required to present detailed project and economic viability plans, among other documents. In addition, candidates are required to present a budget, which should include the percentage of the award (up to 100,000€) that will be destined to the financing of the project.
The final date for entries is the 25th of March, 2015 and the winner will be officially announced around the middle of November. More information is available here.
