THE NOMINATION PROCESS FOR THE TENTH FRONT LINE DEFENDERS AWARD FOR HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS AT RISK (2014) IS NOW OPEN…

Front Line Defenders is currently accepting nominations for the Tenth Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk (2014).

The annual Front Line Defenders Award was established in 2005 to honour the work of a human rights defender who, through non-violent work, is courageously making an outstanding contribution to the promotion and protection of the human rights of others, often at great personal risk to themselves.

The Award seeks to focus international attention on the human rights defender’s work, thus contributing to the recipient’s personal security, and a cash prize of €15,000 is awarded to the Award recipient and his/her organisation in an effort to support the continuation of this important work.

If you would like to nominate a human rights defender for the Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk 2014, please follow this link:

Please note that the nomination process will remain open until midnight (12am GMT) on Friday, 24th January 2014.
