During the event, award-winning projects were presented in four categories; people at risk of social exclusion, victims of gender-based violence, people with disabilities, and elderly people.

The judges’ panel, which has strong links to these social collectives and understands their social reality, chose the winners after evaluating 173 submissions from social entities which work in Andalucía, Ceuta and Melilla. The Panel’s Chairman, the journalist Nuria del Saz, congratulated all of the projects presented and highlighted the value of the Clece Social project.
