    I have just been alerted to the Petra Kelly Prize and have missed the deadline for submission of nominations. I have been working in Kenya in the wake of the election violence in 2008, with a group of community-driven Community Peace Museums, one of which – the Lari Memorial Peace Museum, I would have nominated for the prize.
    Is there any chance at all that you might extend the deadline in order that I might do this?
    Warm wishes
