Transparency International is proud to announce the shortlisted candidates for the 2018 Anti-Corruption Award. The award will be announced on 22 October in a ceremony at the 18th International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC), in Copenhagen, Denmark.

“Through their tireless work and bravery, the three individuals and one institution shortlisted for the 2018 Anti-Corruption Award each send a strong message: that corruption can be challenged. However, each of their stories also speaks to the intense pressure and dangers faced by those who stand up against injustice,” said Boris Divjak, chair of the Anti-Corruption Awards Committee and TI Board Member. “In shortlisting these four inspiring candidates, we celebrate their impact and their courage.”

“Daphne’s battle was a dangerous one and that the bravery with which she fought it should serve as an example to us all as we continue her unfinished fight.” Paul Caruana Galizia, son of Daphne.

“The anti-corruption struggle is unstoppable, despite the opposition and obstacles, the clamour for more transparent democracies and greater accountability will not stop.” - Matías Ponce, CICIG spokesperson.

“Everyday we hear about killing, arrest, or harassment of journalists who uncover corruption and rarely we witness corrupt leaders paying a price for their crimes. Bad guys help each other to silence critics and hide stolen wealth. It is time for those who expose them to work together.” - Khadija Ismayilova

“Citizens can not sit idly by waiting for the world to change, each of us must be part of that transformation.”Ana Garrido Ramos.

The four shortlisted candidates were selected from 169 nominated individuals and institutions. More than 1,000 nominations were received, mostly from members of the public.

Launched in 2000 as the Integrity Award, and renamed in 2016, the Anti-Corruption Award honours remarkable individuals and organisations worldwide, including journalists, public prosecutors, government officials and civil society leaders.

The Anti-Corruption Award may be conferred to a person or an organisation discharging official or professional duties, as well as to activists from all walks of life.

We would like to kindly thank Exiger for supporting the Anti-Corruption Award.
