    PREMIO CASA DE LAS AMÊRICAS
    The Cuban cultural organization Casa de las Américas set up this prestigious award in 1959. Every year it awards prizes for poetry, drama, novels and essays written in any Latin-American language. The prize is the best known Latin-American literary award, and is given for individual works, rather than a writer's entire production. Many well-known Latin-American writers won the prize early in their career, or have served on its international jury.
    PREMIO CERVANTES
    Every year since 1975, on April 23rd – the day Miguel Cervantes died – the Spanish Ministry of Culture has awarded its Premio Cervantes to a Spanish-language writer with a lifetime of literary achievement. The jury is made up of the Director of the Real Academia Española (Spanish Royal Academy), the Director of one of the equivalent Latin American academies, the previous year's winner and other prominent literary figures. It is considered the most prestigious award in the Spanish language (sometimes referred to as the "Spanish Nobel Prize") and those who receive it, such as Argentina's Jorge Luis Borges (1978), Mexico's Octavio Paz (1981), or Spain's Francisco Ayala (1991) and Miguel Delibes (1993), are major literary figures.
