The GAC Awards have the support of the Banc Sabadell Foundation, which also lends its name to the awards. On an institutional level the awards also receive the support of the Department of Culture of the Government of Catalonia, through the Catalan Institute for Cultural Industries (ICEC), the Institute of Culture of Barcelona City Council (ICUB) and the Barcelona Provincial Council.

The jury considered that Mirador de les Arts is an “impressive, brave and  resolute initiative that has decided to fill the void in the existing publications dedicated to art and exhibitions in our country, with contributions by recognised art critics and historians as well as writers and journalists”.
