The global anti-corruption organisation Transparency International is now accepting nominations for its 2013 Integrity Awards. Launched in 2000, the awards recognise the courage and determination of individuals and groups taking remarkable steps to combat corruption.
Past winners include investigative journalists, whistleblowers and citizens’ groups. They have sparked the arrest of corrupt leaders, exposed record-breaking tax scams and shown integrity in the most extreme circumstances.
Nominations are open to the public and can be submitted here until 15 June 2013.
The nominations are judged by a committee of 11 well-known individuals from the anti-corruption movement.
This year’s winners will receive a trophy at a public award ceremony in Berlin on 8 November 2013, as part of Transparency International’s 20th anniversary celebrations.
Transparency International is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption
