Guardian International Development Achievement Award

The Guardian International Development Achievement Award aims to honour the unsung heroes of international development; those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a positive difference to the lives and livelihoods of some of the world's most marginalised people.

Nominations are welcome for individuals of any nationality and based anywhere in the world, who - through achievements in work or life - have made an exceptional contribution to efforts to alleviate poverty in the developing world.

Nominees for the Award will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
  • The extent to which their activities and achievements have had a demonstrable and positive impact on poverty alleviation – either directly or indirectly
  • The sustainability of their achievements in terms of longevity, legacy and impact
  • The extent to which the nominee's activities and achievements have changed social situations, public attitudes, structures or policies that may be behind the poverty, exclusion or disempowerment of the people affected
  • The ways in which the nominee has demonstrated inspirational leadership

The competition is open to individuals (NOT organisations) of any nationality and from anywhere in the world who, through achievements in work or life, have made an exceptional contribution to efforts to alleviate poverty in the developing world.
