The submission period for projects entered into the Hestia Awards 2021, funded this year with a total budget of €8,000 to be split among eight prizes, closed at the end of September 2021. Within the €8,000 budget, in addition to the awards for the recognition and dissemination of work carried out by health professionals in the field of social and healthcare and mental health, to which €3,500 has been allocated, this year, a special category was created to award €4,500 to projects related to COVID-19. Three prizes of €2,000, €1,500 and €1,000 were allocated to the best articles on COVID-19; two prizes of €1,000 each were awarded to the best articles on social and mental healthcare; and three prizes of €500 each were awarded to the best seminars on social healthcare, mental health or palliative care.
A total of 62 proposals were received and evaluated, 55 of them submitted to the best article category, and 18 to the best seminar category. A total of 43 authors took part from 28 centres from across Spain, half of which are located in Catalonia, and the other half are located across Spain’s other autonomous regions (Andalusia, Cantabria, Valencia, Madrid, Murcia and the Basque Country).
The candidates were selected by the jury, which was chaired by Dr Xavier Corbella, director of the UIC Barcelona Hestia Chair. Other members included Dr Miguel Fernández Castañer, collaborating member of the Chair; Dr Susana Subirà, director of the Hestia Foundation; Dr Àngels Cañas, member of the Corporate Management team for the Hestia Alliance Group and Eva Luque, general director of the Hestia Alliance Group. Once it had been confirmed that the proposals complied with the terms and conditions of the call, their journal impact factor (for articles), content and regional scope (for seminars) were then assessed. We want to highlight that 34 of the articles had an impact factor greater than 2, and we would like to congratulate all participants for the outstanding quality of the papers they submitted.
All winners have been informed of the results of the call. On 14 December, the papers will be presented and the awards ceremony will be held online.
