The Council of Tenerife has organised a new edition of the Tenerife Award to promotion and research of the Spanish and American craftsmanship. This award is destined to acknowledge the merits of a research work that deals with craftsmanship and popular arts of Latin America, in whatever of their multiple aspects: recover the missing or almost extinguished crafts, promotion and commercialization.

The Tenerife Award to promotion and research of craftsmanship in Spain and America consists of € 5.000, parchment and a commemorative medal. The works that are presented must be unknown and be written in Spanish. They are incompatible with other award, which is why works that have obtained some other reward won’t be admitted.
