International Development Achievement Award

The Guardian International Development Achievement Award 2011 is now open to accepting nominations to recognise some of the unsung heroes of international development. The Award is now in its third year and aims to celebrate the outstanding contributions to global poverty alleviation. It is run in association with Marie Stopes International and in partnership with Barclays and GSK, the award runs concurrently with the Guardian International Development Journalism Competition.

Nominations are sought of “people who have made a profound contribution to the alleviation of poverty, working above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference to the lives of some of the world’s poorest people. This contribution can be made either directly – through their own work or activities – or indirectly as a result of others using their achievements to improve their lives (e.g. technological inventions or agricultural research).”

One nominee will receive the Award, provided that the quality of entries meets the standard required by the judging panel. If entries do not meet the standard required, the judges reserve the right not to select an Award winner.

Entries must be made in accordance with the instructions given in this entry form and must be received on, or before, the closing date of midnight on 31 July 2011.
