UNESCO-IPDC Prize for Rural Communication

UNESCO has launched a call for nominations for the 2009 UNESCO-IPDC Prize for Rural Communication. Potential submitters are invited to propose nominations in consultation with the National Commissions for UNESCO or with relevant non-governmental organizations maintaining consultative relations with UNESCO. The deadline for submitting nominations is 30 October 2009.

Established in 1985, the UNESCO-IPDC Prize for Rural Communication aims to reward a pioneering activity which contributes to improving communication in rural communities, in particular in developing countries. Awarded on a biennial basis, it consists of a sum of US$ 20,000 and a diploma.

The last recipient of the Prize was the Indian daily newspaper Malayala Manorama, which was selected for its imaginative communication campaign aimed at raising awareness among the people of Kerala on the importance of water conservation as a solution to the problem of droughts in the region.

The Prize will be awarded for the eleventh time during the 27th session of the Intergovernmental Council of the International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC), which will take place at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris from 24 to 26 March 2010.

Nominations should include a description of the candidate’s' background and achievements, a summary of the work, publications and other supporting documents of major importance; a description of the candidate’s' contribution to the Prize’'s objectives; and recommendations from the National Commissions for UNESCO or the NGOs enjoying a consultative status with UNESCO.
