Transparency International announces call for nominations for its Anti-Corruption Award

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



The global anti-corruption organisation Transparency International is now accepting nominations for its 2016 Anti-Corruption Award. Launched in 2000 as the Integrity Award, the award has been renamed to focus on those engaged in a courageous and committed fight against corruption.

The Anti-Corruption Award, like the Integrity Award before it, recognises the courage and determination of individuals and groups taking remarkable steps to combat corruption in their own country. Under its new strategy “Together against Corruption”, Transparency International strives to highlight anti-corruption activists that play a crucial role in the fight against corruption, often at great personal risk.

Nominations for the award will be judged by a committee of eight experts from both Transparency International and other experts from the anti-corruption movement.

Past winners of the Integrity Award came from all walks of life and have included a schoolteacher and a pilot as well as public officials, activists and journalists. Between them they have brought down corrupt politicians, exposed organised crime networks and helped recover millions in stolen assets. Their inspiring actions echo a common message: corruption can be challenged.

In 2014, the award was presented to South Africa’s Public Protector Thuli Madonsela.

Nominations are open to the public and can be submitted here until 5 September 2016.

This year’s winner(s) will receive their awards at the International Anti-Corruption Conference in Panama on 3 December 2016.
