The Award will be presented to people who work for a world free of discrimination, racism and violence, take personal risks for their ideals, use the language of peace and by doing so, inspire and encourage others.
The award also helps in giving recognition to such people by making their work visible and making them realize that they are not along in their struggle. It also encourages others to fight for their ideals.
The Award will be presented to the winners on 15 September, which is the birthday of Hrant Dink after whom the award has been named.
Nominations can be submitted online or by mail. The last date for submission is 15 April 2011. For more information, visit this link.
