P.C. Hooft award 2014

In the #Netherlands it is breaking news that the premier award for the Dutch language has been awarded for 2014. This news results in an update to the Wikipedia articles about Mr Otten and it is a reason to add statements to his Wikidata item.

When you read the Dutch article, you will find that Mr Otten is well appreciated; many awards and even an honorary degree is mentioned. When you add this information you will find that for many awards there is no label in English. When you read the English article, you will find that the honorary degree is not for literature but for theology.

Most previous P.C. Hooft award winners are present in a category on the English Wikipedia. Thanks to Widar it is easy for Wikidata to know them as well.
Thanks,
