Citizenship - 24.08.2015

Participate in the European Democratic Citizenship Awards
Since 2014, The European Democratic Citizenship Awards are rewarding outstanding initiatives and civil society stakeholders, who bring in a real democratic citizenship with an innovative dimension and with a concrete impact on their communities’ life, be it at the local, regional, national or European level (deadline: 31 August 2015).

To do so, four categories of initiatives illustrate this concept of democratic citizenship:
  1. The “Citizens’ campaign of the year” Award aims at supporting raising-awareness or advocacy campaigns which occurred in 2014, with a strong impact on community’s life or on public decisions;
  2. The “NGO of the year” Award recompenses organisations which made a significant action towards the promotion of European values;
  3. The “Personality of the year” Award is given to individuals who had an outstanding contribution to democratic life and to the development of a community or a cause;
  4. The “Media initiative of the year” Award, rewarding participatory initiatives by, for and with citizens who played an active part in reinforcing participation, relaying information and developing the civic space. A particular attention will be paid to initiatives promoting freedom of expression and freedom of media.

In order to participate and have a chance to be selected, please complete the following online form before 31 August 2015 by clicking here. Following the deadline, an international jury will select the shortlisted nominees within each category.
