Transparency International Anti-Corruption Award 2020 for Individuals and Organisations Worldwide

Transparency International Anti-Corruption Award 2020 for Individuals and Organisations Worldwide

Deadline: March 16, 2020

Nominations are invited for the Transparency International Anti-Corruption Award 2020. Launched in 2000 as the Integrity Award, and renamed in 2016, the Anti-Corruption Award honours remarkable individuals and organisations worldwide, including journalists, public prosecutors, government officials and civil society leaders.

Winners are a source of inspiration to the anti-corruption movement because their actions echo a common message: that corruption can be challenged.

The Transparency International’s Anti-Corruption Award aims to recognise a particular action or initiative undertaken by one or several individuals or organisations and constituting a tangible contribution to the fight against corruption and the mission of the TI movement. While recipients of the Award would be expected to be of exemplary character, the Anti-Corruption Award will recognise a particular action or initiative demonstrating the manifold impacts in the fight against corruption worldwide.
