The 2012 Chilean National Prizes for history, applied science and technology, natural sciences, literature and music were recently announced at a ceremony at La Moneda presidential palace.

The National Prize for Literature was awarded to poet Óscar Hahn, whose previous work was actually forbidden during the Pinochet dictatorship.
