The FC Barcelona Foundation and the Catalan College of Journalists have organised, since 2004, the Manuel Vázquez Montalbán International Award for Journalism, in the category of Sports Journalism, with the intention of permanently remembering the figure and work of journalists who make rigor, ethics, social commitment, and self-criticism a constant in their professional work.
