The Macondo Awards are given by the Colombian Academy of Cinematography Arts and Sciences (Spanish: Academia Colombiana de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas) to honor achievement in Colombian cinema.

The awards are given annually since 2010 by the Academy, whose members include Colombian actors, directors, producers, and industry film technicians.[1]


The first edition of the Macondo Awards was held in October 2010 at the Jorge Eliecer Gaitán Theatre.[2] The award's name is based on Macondo, the fictional town in Gabriel García Márquez's novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude. The statuette was created by Roberto Cano and is based on the Macondo tree.[3]
