N-Peace Awards 2013: Last chance to nominate!
The N-Peace Awards 2013 nominations period ends April 13th, so hurry and nominate your candidate! We’re collecting nominations of women leaders and peace advocates from Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Timor-Leste, Nepal, Afghanistan, and the Philippines.
Last year, we successfully brought to light the stories of 100 peace advocates and engaged over 55,000 supporters in the campaign around the awards. The inspiring stories of both nominees and awardees generated a lot of buzz and the campaign concluded with the President of the Philippines presiding over the N-Peace Awards Ceremony. In 2013, we plan to make the campaign even better!
Similar to last year, we have three awards categories. The lead category, Role Models for Peace, recognizes women who have shown leadership in the areas of conflict prevention, resolution, reconstruction and peacebuilding. Special categories of the N-Peace Awards also acknowledge Emerging Peace Champions, to support the leadership of young women engaging in peacebuilding, and Men who Advocate for Equality, to recognize efforts of men who have championed women’s rights in communities affected by conflict.
