to the Official Website of the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards
for Literature, the country's most prestigious and
longest-running literary contest.
It was to honor the legacy of Don Carlos Palanca, Sr. that the
Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature was established in
1950 and the first award was given in 1951. Through this annual
literary contest, the family and heirs of Carlos Palanca sought
to keep his name alive, along with his legacy of discipline and
perseverance, and to enrich the nation's cultural heritage.
The website provides a venue for viewing the Palanca winning
works; to facilitate participation in the annual literary
contest; and to aid in the dissemination of information
regarding the contest. It also aims to create a community where
people interested in the Palanca Awards can interact.
