OVIEDO/SPAIN, 2 October 2006 - The 2006 Prince of Asturias Awards grand presentation ceremony is to be held on Friday, 20 October at 6.30pm.  The venue for the event is Oviedo’s Campoamor Theatre.  Journalists wishing to report or cover this event from the 19 and 21 October or any event programmed and organised for the week of the ceremony MUST REGISTER at the Prince of Asturias Foundation.

For security reasons, the name and surname, National Identity Card or passport number, date of birth of the person wishing to register and his or her job title (reporter, photographer or technician) must be provided.  The limited space available at some of the venues may mean that access will only be allowed to a limited number of journalists and that press pools will be used.  The deadline for registration is 11 October.

Our Press Department is available to complete registration and to provide further information regarding other events still pending inclusion in the final programme, schedules, possible press conferences and any other details you may require.

The Press and Credentials Office in Calle Ventura Rodríguez will provide press files, copies of speeches, and information about upcoming events and late changes to the original programme during the whole week leading up to the Prince of Asturias Awards Presentation Ceremony.

It also provides telephone lines, fax machines, photocopiers and computers for the media.  There is 25Mbit high-speed broadband internet connection with WiFi or cable access available for journalists and graphic reporters, so portable equipment¬ can be connected with ease.
