Monsignor Freddy Bretón was awarded the 2023 National Prize for Literature from the Dominican Republic. The Metropolitan Archbishop of Santiago de los Caballeros is a prominent writer, possessing a solid work that consecrates him among the best Dominican authors. The Prize is awarded every year jointly by the Corripio Foundation and the Ministry of Culture.

The award was given for being a worthy author of historical, spiritual, and social themes, with a singular contribution to the art of verbal creation, in the genres of poetry, novel, biography and essay, in the light of an exemplary use of the word.

The rector of UNPHU, Architect Miguel Fiallo Calderón, was present at the presentation, participating as part of the jury in the election of the writer in this distinction. The event was chaired by Mr. Corripio Estrada, and the Minister of Culture, Milagros Germán, and José Alcántara Almánzar and Jorge Tena Reyes, members of the Foundation.
