Are you a peacebuilder? Would international recognition and a $10,000 prize help your organisation make a bigger impact? Apply today for the annual Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards.

Application Deadline: 15th April 2019

Offered annually? Yes

Eligible Countries: All

About the Award: Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards are the global awards for local peacebuilding run by Peace Direct. Awarded annually, they offer international recognition for grassroots peace activists in conflict-affected countries worldwide. These are inspiring individuals who are building a better tomorrow for their communities, in the world’s most fragile and needy places.

This year, there will also be a photography prize to celebrate photos that illustrate the theme of ‘local peacebuilding’. The winning entry will receive $1,000 of camera equipment for the photo that best illustrates local peacebuilding in action, or best communicates this theme.

Previous winner Gatwal Gatkouth from Uganda said: “The Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders Awards means so much to my organisation. It marks a new beginning that outlines the fact that, no matter how small one starts an initiative, if the intentions are good, the world one day honours their efforts. We started very small, with so much passion, and before long Peace Direct put our work on the spotlight. We now have a very solid footing for 2019 and we anticipate to scale up our peace building work deep into the grassroots communities.”

One prize is available in each of the three categories below:

  • Women-led Peacebuilding
  • Youth-led Peacebuilding
  • Inter-Religious Peacebuilding
