Raúl Andrade Moscoso (October 4, 1905-September 10, 1983) was an Ecuadorian journalist and playwright.

Andrade traveled throughout Mexico and Colombia, where he worked as a journalist for El Tiempo (Bogota, Colombia), and published his book La internacional negra en Colombia (The Black International in Colombia), a collection of articles on the crisis in Colombia. He represented the Ecuadorian government in a number of countries. Because of his merits he received several decorations: "Al Merito" (Ecuador), "Orden de San Carlos" (Colombia), and "Comendador de la Orden de Leopoldo" (Belgium). As a dramatist, Andrade published Suburbio (The Outskirts), a romantic evocation on the suburbs of Quito.[1]

He was awarded the Ecuadorian National Prize of Culture "Premio Eugenio Espejo" in 1983.[2]
