Dec '13
The Spanish Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism (MINETUR) has announced the launch of the very first edition of National Fashion Awards, which would be held annually in order to recognize the work of firms operating in the fashion sector of the country as well as promote the industry.
According to a statement issued by the MINETUR, the Ministry, through the Directorate General of Industry and Small and Medium Enterprises, and the Bureau of Spanish Fashion, established the awards for supporting the sector, which is of great importance for the Spanish economy and the ‘Brand Spain’.
The call for the first edition of the awards was also published in the official state gazette of Spain (BOE).
According to the Ministry, the awards would recognize those individuals, institutions, organizations and industries, which have made significant efforts to achieve excellence in the field of fashion.
The awards would be convened annually and would endorse the prestige of the fashion industry in Spain, contributing in turn to support the state policy of ‘Brand Spain’. 
The fashion awards would support creation, development and strengthening of the fashion industry as part of the strategy to promote initiatives that create more trade in the sector, in times when the economic activity of the country needs revival.
The five categories under which various organizations and firms would be recognized are: the National Award for SMEs in fashion industry; National Award for large company in fashion sector; National Award for entrepreneurship; National Award for fashion designer, which has two sub-categories, lifetime achievement and new designer honor; and National Award for professional communication and outstanding work in enhancement of Spanish fashion.
