Prizes

Aurelia Muñoz Award
For the 8th WTA Biennial, the Aurelia Muñoz Award has been founded in recognition of the prestigious work of this important Spanish artist. The award will be given to a Spanish artist who has been distinguished for his or her career, both in Spain and internationally. The award has the support of the Muñoz family.

Judith Scott Award
This 8th WTA Biennial will confer the Judith Scott Award, honoring this American artist who, despite her physical and cognitive limitations, managed to transcend these and receive worldwide recognition with her “wool webs”, becoming an example of improvement and a model to follow. The award will be bestowed on an artist who, through textile art has opened up to the world, overcoming his or her difficulties and barriers. Fundación Once will temporarily loan an artwork from its collection to the Biennial in support of this award.
