Axar.az reports that Ilber Ortayli, a veteran Turkish historian, was named as winner of this year’s social sciences award.

Goksel Baktagir, a well-known musician, will get the music award.

Director Yavuz Turgul will receive the prize for cinema, Erdogan said.

Traditional arts award was announced for Ali Toy, “who produces work of arts with a unique synthesis of calligraphy and architectural design,” the president said.

Selahattin Kara, known for his Istanbul-focused painting, is the winner of the painting prize.

Late Nurettin Topcu, an academic and writer, will be given the Vefa (Loyalty) award.

The presidential culture and arts awards are annual prizes that have been awarded by Turkish presidents since 1995.

This year’s Presidential Culture and Grand Awards ceremony will be held later in this year, Erdogan said.
