The deadline for submission of candidates to the XXIV edition of the International Prize Grupo Compostela-Xunta de Galicia is extended until 1 June 2020.

The Compostela Group of Universities has decided to resume the XXIV edition of the International Prize Grupo Compostela-Xunta de Galicia, after a few weeks of temporary suspension of the submission of candidacies due to the exceptional measures adopted by the different countries by cause of the COVID-19.

The deadline for submission of nominations is extended until 1 June 2020 and the updated guidelines will regulate the current edition, in which documentation must be sent only online, unlike previous calls in which it was necessary to send original copies by registered post.

This award, which is endowed with a monetary prize of 6,000 euros and a golden shell, seeks to acknowledge the work carried out by individuals or institutions of international relevance that have contributed to the furthering of human values and the cultural promotion of the Camino de Santiago.

This year, the activities of the award must also be a mechanism for generating academic cohesion, which will help to overcome the global health crisis and highlight the necessary solidarity and interconnection of all communities and continents.
