Description

The International Hrant Dink Award is waiting for nominees. Every year, the Award will be presented to individuals, organizations or groups that work for a free and just world free from discrimination, racism and violence, who take personal risks for achieving those ideals, who break the stereotypes and use the language of peace and by doing so give inspiration and hope to others. By means of this Award, the Hrant Dink Foundation aims to remind to all those who struggle for these ideals that their voices are heard, their works are visible, they are not alone, and also to encourage everyone to fight for their ideals.

The International Hrant Dink Award winners will be announced on September 15th, 2013 under the aegis of the International Hrant Dink Foundation at an award ceremony organised on Hrant Dink’s birthday. 

Each year the award is granted to two individuals; one from Turkey and one from abroad. In addition to the award itself, after an annual scanning and reviewing process, the Award Committee makes a selection of individuals, institutions, organisations and initiatives that pursue activities in line with the principles of Hrant Dink Award and announces their names to the public during the award ceremony under the title of “Sparks”.

The candidates for the International Hrant Dink Award are either determined by the Award Committee according to the results of the respective annual review process and/or can be nominated by other individuals, organisations or institutions. Self-nominations will not be taken into consideration. The deadline for nominations is 15th of April for each year.
