Every year, at the end of February, the remarkable activities, personalities, events and works of the previous year are honored and awarded with Latgalian yearly prizes Boņuks.
In order to appoint the award winners, a bid for candidates is announced every year. Latgalians and anyone interested in Latgalian culture are invited to nominate. The applicants are assessed by a jury, which then determines the winners by voting. The Boņuks are awarded for achievements in music, journalism, cinema, literature, traditional and contemporary culture, etc. An award for lifetime contribution to the development of Latgalian culture is also presented annually.
