To observe the International Anti-Corruption Day on 9th December 2018, Transparency International (TI) is collaborating with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to honour young people from all over the world who challenge corruption through their innovative and inspiring ideas.
People between the age of 18 and 35 were invited to submit a short video clip presenting their idea on new ways to fight corruption.
The Future Against Corruption Award may be conferred to activists from all walks of life. Three finalists will be selected out of the submitted entries by the general public as well as the Award Committee.
In choosing the recipients, the need to recognize efforts in diverse fields of civil society and the acknowledgment of anti-corruption initiatives throughout the world will be taken into consideration.
The competition consists of two entry streams: Global and Africa. Two Award recipients will be selected from the global stream and one from the African stream.
The three finalists will be invited to Berlin during the International Anti-Corruption Day festivities to be awarded with the Future Against Corruption Award and to participate at a public ceremony, hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and Transparency International.
They will have the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas with anti-corruption experts from the German government, Transparency International and representatives from anti-corruption organizations and the media.
The competition winner will also have the chance to discuss with the relevant National Chapter and the local German Cooperation office about ways of putting into practice the ideas featured in the winning video entry.
