The nomination period for entries to the 2019 Awards is now open. For the first time, and coinciding with the Princess of Girona Foundation’s tenth anniversary, this will include a new International Award which recognises the personal and professional careers of young people in any part of the world who stand out for their work, their merits and their exemplarity. The impact must always be considered in its broadest dimension, in that their contributions extend and/or are known on an international level. This global award highlights the capacity for achievement and self-improvement of young people from all over the world in the development of projects or businesses —especially when they have involved difficulty or risk— demonstrating that they have the power to influence, in a creative way, positive changes in society and that they are inspiring role models for other young people. Unlike the other categories of the FPdGi Awards, the International Award is selected from nominations. 

The FPdGi is launching the Princess of Girona Foundation Awards with the aim of promoting and fostering initiative and effort, scientific research and artistic creativity, solidarity and the development of talent in young entrepreneurs and innovators who are driven to build a more just world in a globalised setting, and who have the capacity to take risks and the necessary motivation to bring about changes in society.
