Yayori Awards

The Yayori Award focuses on women activists, journalists, and artists who work at the grassroots level with socially marginalized peoples in order to create a 21st century free from war and discrimination against women. Younger activists are especially encouraged to apply so that the Yayori Award can support future leaders.

We will select an individual or a group from mainly the Asian region and offer an award certificate and a prize amount of 500,000 yen.

In principle, for winners of the Yayori Award from overseas, the Women's Fund for Peace and Human Rights will cover only transportation and accommodation expenses to attend the presentation ceremony in Tokyo.

Nomination: Individuals and groups with nominees in mind are encouraged to submit recommendations for any and all appropriate candidates through the submission of a nomination form and all applicable references. Self-nomination won't be accepted. The reference material that is submitted will not be returned. The form and the references shall be submitted in English. For convenience, it is recommended that the form and the reference be submitted as an e-mail attachment.
