These awards, which are presented each year as part of the great Fair of Mallorca, recognize those individuals, entities or institutions that have carried out an activity for the benefit of society inquera or have excelled in a relevant way for their contribution to the progress of the city.
In this way, the Municipal Commission of Culture has decided to award Antònia Cantallops Ferragut with the Dijous Bo 2022 prize for her research work into traditional Mallorcan cuisine, as chef at the Ca’n Amer winery in Inca, and for her collaboration in making Inca a gastronomic reference both in Mallorca and beyond the island. Thus, she is awarded this recognition for her efforts in the recovery and innovation of a wide variety of dishes, for her commitment to using local and seasonal products, and for the organisation of traditional and international cuisine days.
On the other hand, Joan Figuerola Figuerola will be recognised with this award for being a reference in football in the city, being an example for many generations of players as well as for directors and fans. Throughout his life, he has been dedicated to train present and future players of C.E. Constancia, some of them even competing in 1st and 2nd Division A and in different categories of national football. With him, the club won the Balearic Youth and Amateur championships. With this Dijous Bo 2022 Award to his personality, the aim is to make visible the importance of sport in the construction of a healthy citizenship and also in the social development of the city.
Finally, it has also been decided that the Scientific Committee of the Inca Local Studies Conference will also be recognised with the Dijous Bo 2022 Award for its long history of disseminating a wide range of aspects of the idiosyncrasy of Inca, especially scientific dissemination.
