The “Félix Varela” Award for Excellence in American Journalism on Latino issues is the largest cash prize in this category in US Journalism.

The prizes are presented by the AL DÍA Foundation, chaired by Hernán Guaracao, former president of the National Association of Hispanic Publications in the US, and founder, editor and publisher of AL DÍA, a print and web-based news media organization with main offices in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The award was established to honor the memory of Father Félix Varela y Morales, an American intellectual of Latino origin who founded one of the first Spanish-language newspapers in the United States, in the city of Philadelphia, at the beginning of the 19th Century.

The “Félix Varela” Awards’ purpose is to recognize any American journalist covering with excellence multicultural issues in the nation today, either through Spanish-language Print, or any digital media outlet, in English or Spanish.
