XII Prêmio Carlos Gomes de Ópera & Música Erudita.

The major annual classical music competition in Brazil is named for the composer Carlos Gomes. At this year's event, some musicians well-known for their Villa-Lobos recordings won awards.

The conductor John Neschling, late of the Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo won the Troféu Guarany. Ironically (or not - I'm not sure if this is really ironic), the OSESP won the award for best orchestra.

Sonia Rubinsky won for best instrumentalist, while the Quarteto Villa-Lobos won for best chamber ensemble. All the details are here. Below is the Quarteto VL's trophy, from the QVL blog.
