The deadline for submission of innovations has now passed! We are very proud and happy to announce that we have received an overwhelming number of applications for The Awards 2018. Also, these innovative applicants seem to come from all over the world which is exactly what we were hoping for. We would like to give a big thank you to everyone who has put their time and effort into the procedure.
The next step
For each category, the assigned jury will soon start to make a selection of the best ten initiatives. Over the course of next week, applicants will be contacted whether they are selected or not. Those who will make it to the last 10 initiatives of their chosen category will receive detailed information about the continuation of this procedure.
At the Partos Innovation Festival, we honour awards in four categories. For the category Best Innovation for Development, we received 89 initiatives. Furthermore, a total of 13 applicants will compete for the award Best Humanitarian Innovation. Lastly, an amazing number of 319 initiatives have found their way to our NOW-Us! Award. Together with Voice, we are very glad to see that so many inclusive initiatives are keen on strengthening their organization and are willing to compete for this award. And of course, the ten teams that currently join our Summer Labs are all still competing for the Award Best Idea for Development!
