The Manuel Garcia Prize
In January 1966, the then Secretary of IALP, J Perelló, announced that he had persuaded the Sandoz firm of Basel in Switzerland to donate a prize of one thousand Swiss Francs to be named after Manuel Garcia (1805-1906), singer, music educator, vocal pedagogue and inventor of the laryngoscope.The prize was to be awarded by the IALP Board for the best article presented in Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica, and was to be bestowed every three years.
Since the early 1990s, funding for the prize has been provided by IALP. The current prize value is 1,000 EUR.
