An incubator of new patrons

The Ibero-American Patronage Awards recognises every year the labour of two great art patrons, one Spanish and the other Latin American, that from their humbleness and generosity accept this recognition, helping this way to the Awards and to inspire other men and women to follow their path and to commit themselves to the preservation, promotion and dissemination of the heritage and artistic talent of Ibero-America.

The awardees

The role of the patron is now more necessary and relevant than ever, due to their task maintaining the cultural heritage and the fact that they have become key promoters of new artistic talents.

Art for equality

The Ibero-American Patronage Awards serve as a platform to promote equality in art. It is also a boost for the emerging talent, giving visibility to young emerging female artists.

Every year the awarded of the Ibero-American Patronage Awards receives an artwork from an emerging artist as a recognition to their labour as art patrons.
