The Spindle organises awards to stimulate innovative projects that are focused on creating a fairer, more inclusive, sustainable world. We honour awards in three categories:

  1. Best Innovation for Development
  2. The NOW-Us! (NOthing about us, Without Us) Award
  3. Best Humanitarian Innovation

People from all over the world can participate by sending in their projects and initiatives. Our juries decide which projects will go through and are invited to join us at the Partos Innovation Festival on October 11th 2019 in the Netherlands. The finalists will be in the running for prize money, coaching and receive the undivided attention of Dutch NGOs, potential investors and donors!
