This year, 56 innovations that applied for the Best Innovation for Development Award stand the chance to win the Public Award at The Partos Innovation Festival on October 11th. Which one is your favorite? From September 10th – September 30th, you can cast your vote for one of the innovations to win the Public Award!
As an innovation platform, The Spindle promotes innovative initiatives that are focused on creating a fairer, more inclusive, sustainable world. We would like to show you the innovative things NGOs, as well as start-ups, social entrepreneurs, and other businesses, are doing and inspire people working in international development. That’s why we set out a call for innovations last summer. In total, we received 89 innovations of which 56 initiatives met the criteria.
All 56 innovations are in the race for winning the Public Award. That is to say, the innovation that receives the most public votes will win the Award at the Partos Innovation Festival. But there are valuable prizes to win for the numbers 2 and 3 (that received the most public votes) as well.
Vote for your favorite innovation!
The three innovations with the most votes will win the Public Award at the Partos Innovation Festival on October 11th. The voting term covers three weeks, starting from Monday, September 10th – 10 AM (Amsterdam time) to Sunday, September 30th – 23.59 PM. So have a look at the innovations and vote for your favorite! Once you made up your mind, you cast your vote by clicking on the ‘vote-button’ that will appear on the project pages of each innovation. Be careful, as soon as you click on the button, your vote has been cast directly and you can only vote once.
NB: All project pages of the innovations are written by the teams themselves. If things are unclear or if you have any questions, you may get in touch with the team by visiting their website (if provided).
Good to know is that the Public Award is considered to be a subcategory. The main prize is granted by a special jury. In total 10 out of the 56 innovations are selected for this main prize. These teams already received a message from The Spindle.
