Now in its sixth year, our Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards offer global recognition for grassroots peace activists in war zones around the world. These are the only global awards for local peacebuilders – inspiring individuals who are building a better tomorrow in the world’s most fragile places.

Peace Direct are delighted to announce the its annual ‘Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders’ Awards are now open for entries. Across the world, local people are tackling the causes of violence at the root, and rebuilding lives after war that has torn communities apart. Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders are the global awards for local peacebuilding, to recognise the work of those taking a stand for peace.

 

Awarded annually, they offer international recognition for grassroots peace activists in conflict-affected countries worldwide. These are inspiring individuals who are building a better tomorrow for their communities, in the world’s most fragile and needy places. Three winning organisations will each receive $10,000 and online promotion of their work, and $1,000 will be awarded to the winning photography prize.

The winners will be chosen by an international panel of experts including distinguished peacebuilders, political figures of reconciliation, the Alliance for Peacebuilding and our 3 amazing sponsors: AWAY Travel, The Alliance for Peacebuilding, and the United States Institute for Peace.

In the last five years, over 1000 entries have been received from nearly 100 countries. The prize winners have worked with ex-child soldiers in Uganda, young people in Israel-Palestine, villagers hit by drug wars in Colombia, tribal groups in Papua New Guinea and more.

This year’s categories are:
  • Women-led peacebuilding
  • Youth-led peacebuilding
  • Non-violent action

Eligibility

These are global awards so there is no geographical restriction on applications. In order to be eligible to enter, you must:

  • Undertake peacebuilding work – your organisation is either a peacebuilding organisation or has peacebuilding as a substantial element of your work.
  • Be locally based – your organisation must be based in the country or communities where your work is done. If your organisation operates in multiple countries, you are not eligible to enter. (Note cross-border projects are eligible.)
  • Be an independent organisation, not an in-country or satellite organisation of an international NGO.
  • Be working, or planning to work, in at least one of the following thematic areas: women-led peacebuilding; youth-led peacebuilding; or non-violent action.
Three organisations will each receive $10,000 and online promotion of their work, plus 5 years’ free membership of the Alliance for Peacebuilding. A representative from each of the winning organisations will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the award ceremony at PeaceCon 2018 in Washington, DC.

 

This year, there will also be a photography prize to celebrate photos that illustrate the theme of ‘local peacebuilding’. The winning entry will receive $1,000 of camera equipment for the photo that best illustrates local peacebuilding in action, or best communicates this theme.
