The Soberano Awards is the Dominican award, which are awarded annually by the Asociación de Cronistas de Arte of the Dominican Republic in Santo Domingo.[1]


The Soberano Awards (formerly known as Casandra Awards) is an award given since 1985, by the Association of Art Critics of the Dominican Republic. The ceremony is held annually since 1992 in Santo Domingo at the Teatro Nacional.[2]

Name change[edit]

The awards were called Casandra Awards (Premios Casandra in Spanish) since 1985, which was honoring the entertainer Casandra Damirón, but it was later renamed in 2012 ending the dispute with her family, to Soberano Awards (Premios Soberano in Spanish).[3]
