Consistent with her way of thinking

Present at the main event of the Talent Tour, Victoria Luengo expressed her gratitude for the prestigious award, stating: “It is an honour to receive this award for the way I feel about my profession, and I am very happy because being here today is to feel that I have managed to act in a way that is consistent with my way of thinking”.

The jury, chaired by Ana Vallés and made up of leading figures such as Rafael Rodríguez Villalobos, Luis Bassat, Marko Daniel, Ignacio García-Belenguer, Jesús Marchamalo, Antonio Najarro and Andrés Salado, highlighted Luengo’s ability to move audiences and her contribution to the artistic world.
