Transparency International announces short-listed candidates for Anti-Corruption Award

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Transparency International today announced the candidates short-listed for the Anti-Corruption Award (in alphabetical order):

Launched in 2000 as the Transparency International Integrity Award and renamed this year, the Anti-Corruption Award honours remarkable individuals and organisations worldwide, including journalists, public prosecutors, government officials, and civil society leaders who expose and fight corruption.

Transparency International asked the public to nominate their anti-corruption heroes and received 580 nominations for 136 individuals. All nominations were carefully analysed and discussed by the Anti-Corruption Award committee. All short-listed candidates are a source of inspiration to the anti-corruption movement because their actions echo a common message that corruption can be challenged.

The winner will be announced on 3 December at the Anti-Corruption Award ceremony during the International Anti-Corruption Conference, Panama City.
