Following the jury meeting for the 34th edition of the Camões Prize, which took place on October 24, the Minister of Culture announced that the Camões Prize 2022 has been awarded to Silviano Santiago.

According to the jury, “Silviano Santiago, in addition to being a writer with a literary work with several national and international awards (Jabuti, Oceanos, etc.), is a thinker capable of a civic and cultural intervention of great relevance, with a notable contribution to the projection of the Portuguese language as a language of critical thinking, in Brazil and abroad (in Ibero-American and African countries, in the United States and in Europe).”

The Camões Prize, created by Portugal and Brazil in 1989, is the most prestigious award in the Portuguese language.
