Transparency International: Inviting Applicants for Future Against Corruption Award 2018

Transparency International (TI) is seeking applications for its Future Against Corruption Award 2018 for young people across the globe to join the anti-corruption movement and be a source of inspiration in the fight against corruption.

Since 1993, Transparency International (TI) has been leading the fight against corruption worldwide, working in more than 100 countries as part of a broader global movement. What TI’s work has consistently proven is that corruption can be challenged.

In light of Transparency International’s 25th anniversary and the International Anti-Corruption Day on 9th December 2018, 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 are 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 Future Against Corruption Award Committee. In choosing the recipients, the need to recognize efforts in diverse fields of civil society and the acknowledgement of anti-corruption initiatives throughout the world will be taken into consideration. The competition will consist of two entry streams: Global and Africa. Two Award recipients will be selected from the global stream and one from the African stream.
