PROMETHEVS Great Awards

Are granted by ANONIMUL Foundation, starting from 2002, to Romanian artists for the following domains: literature, music, visual arts and show arts.

Two awards are granted:

  • PROMETHEVS Great Award for Opera Omnia, for the entire career, in amount of ROL 1 billion (RON 100,000) and the trophy
  • PROMETHEVS Great Award for Opera Prima, for debut, in amount of ROL 100 million (RON 10,000) and the trophy
  • Note: At the 2008 edition was also awarded the following prizes – Finalist for PROMETHEVS Great Award for Opera Omnia – three prizes worth ROL 100 million each.

The evaluation procedure:

Starting with 2007, the judging procedure is amended as follows:

  • ANONIMUL Foundation appoints the president of the jury for a period of five years.
  • There are four members of the jury, one for each domain. Such members are elected by the president and they hold a 2 year mandate.
  • A person may be again a member of the jury only under the mandate of a different president or if such person is appointed as president of the jury.
  • The members of the jury may candidate for PROMETHEUS Great Award after two years starting from the moment when they cease to hold such position.
  • The winners cannot be nominated again and cannot be members of the jury in the following year.
  • The nominees who do not win the PROMETHEUS Great Award may be nominated after two years.
  • The members of the jury make three proposals for each section (Opera Prima, respectively Opera Omnia) for the domain they represent (previously consulting the proposals from the public, on the website of the ANONIMUL Foundation).
  • The decisions of the jury are made by simple majority voting or by secret ballot in the awarding evening. The festivity takes place at Club PROMETHEUS (P-ta Natiunile Unite nr. 3-5, sector 4).
  • In case of ballotage, the vote of the president is decisive.
