Alexandrion Trophies

Select edition:


On the evening of October 1st, under the dome of the symbolic building of national Romanian culture spirit, the Romanian Athenaeum, nearly 700 guests, participated at the awarding of the Constantin Brancoveanu Awards offered by the Alexandrion Foundation, as a tribute and recognition of the values of the Romanian culture.

The President’s message

A priority of the Alexandrion Foundation has always been and still are the cultural projects. We constantly show our support and appreciation for the values of culture through everything we do and through everything we intend to do next.
Thus we kept our promise and we got this year to organize the sixth edition of the Constantin Brancoveanu Awards. They are meant to promote the values and vision of a great ruler who has maintained peace in the country for 25 years and who has been a great supporter of art, science and culture. At the same time, these distinctions are offered to honor the values of Romanian culture and the personalities who have gone through an unanimously recognized career. The winners of the Constantrin Brâncoveanu Awards are part of all fields of culture, art and science – literature, history, music, theater or film, architecture, medicine or economics.
In 2018, the 5th Bucharest edition of the Constantin Brâncoveanu Awards was held under the sign of the Centenary of the Union of 1918, at the Royal Palace (National Museum of Art of Romania). The Constantin Brâncoveanu Awards for the Diaspora 2019 were held in Paris on May 28, 2019. These are dedicated to talented Romanians who have chosen to work and develop outside the borders of our country.
Also from 2018, these Awards have evolved worldwide. We crossed the ocean and organized, at the New York Public Library, in the USA a major event entitled “Gala Constantin Brancoveanu International”. The distinctions offered here were for cultural and scientific personalities from around the world.
In addition, we continue to organize the Alexandrion Trophies, a tribute to the Foundation for athletes who achieved outstanding performances in the precedent year.
I renew my promise that we will continue the tradition of the Constantin Brancoveanu Awards Gala in Romania, in the diaspora and across the Ocean as before.
