The ESPAÑA Award Series was devised by the European PSK Club on 17th February 2008. This was to sponsor a series of PSK awards based on the EPC membership and administrative system of Spain.

Spain is politically organized into 17 Autonomous Communities (comunidades autónomas) and 2 autonomous cities (ciudades autónomas) - Ceuta and Melilla. Administratively Spain also comprises fifty provinces. Seven autonomous communities are composed of only one province: Asturias, Balearic Islands, Cantabria, La Rioja, Madrid, Murcia, and Navarre.

The ESPAÑA awards may be claimed by any EPC member eligible under the EPC Awards General Rules who can produce evidence of having contacted EPC members from various EU areas (provinces) within Spain by using any type of the Phase Shift Keying. The Francisco Pizarro Award may be claimed for contacts with 12 EU areas (provinces), the Vasco Nunez de Balboa Award - for contacts with 24 EU areas (provinces), the Hernan Cortes Award - for contacts with 36 EU areas (provinces), and the Christopher Columbus Award - for contacts with 48 EU areas (provinces) of Spain. Contact with 1 (one) EA8 or 1 (one) EA9 station can be used as a «Joker» to replace any 1 (one) missing Spanish EU Area. Only 1 (one) QSO is allowed with EA8, and 1 (one) QSO with EA9. Contacts for ESPAÑA awards are valid on or after 10th June 2006.

There is another special award from this series called Spanish DXCC Award. This award may be claimed by any EPC member eligible under the EPC Awards General Rules who can produce evidence of having contacted stations on PSK from all 9 radio amateur regions of Spain - EA1, EA2, EA3, EA4, EA5, EA6, EA7, EA8 and EA9. Contacts made to claim the Spanish DXCC Award have no time or date restrictions.
