Are you a peacebuilder? Would international recognition and a $10,000 prize help your organisation make a bigger impact? If yes, then for the annual Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards!
Peace Direct is currently accepting applications for its third Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Awards to showcase the best locally led peacebuilding organisations across the world. Entrants will need to show how they are making communities more peaceful, or breaking the cycle of violence. There are special prizes for technology and peacebuilding and photography and peace.
In addition to finding the best examples of local peacebuilders, Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders is looking for photos that illustrate the theme of ‘local peacebuilding’. Prizes worth $1,000 are on offer.
To be eligible, your work must fit into the categories:
- Women-led peacebuilding
- Youth peacebuilding
- Environmental peacebuilding
- Inter-religious peacebuilding
- Arts and peacebuilding
The three winning organisations will receive:
- $10,000 prize funding for peacebuilding activities.
- Invitation to attend a winners’ event in London.
- Promotion of their work online, including on the Insight on Conflict and Peace Direct websites and newsletters.
- Alongside the main prize and categories, the organisation that best makes use of technology in their work will receive a scholarship to attend the ‘Build Peace 2016’ conference in Zurich, Switzerland, and become a Build Peace Fellow, receiving additional support for their peacebuilding work.
These are global awards. There is no geographical restriction on applications. In order to be eligible to enter, you must:
- Undertake peacebuilding work – your organisation is either a peacebuilding organisation or has peacebuilding as a substantial element of your work.
- Be locally based – your organisation must be based in the country or communities where your work will be done. If your organisation operates in multiple countries, you are not eligible to enter. (Note cross-border projects are eligible.)
- Be an independent organisation, not an in-country or satellite organisation of an international NGO.
- Be working, or planning to work, in at least one of the following thematic areas mentioned above.
