The global anti-corruption organization Transparency International now is accepting nominations for its 2014 Integrity Awards. Launched in 2000, the awards recognize the courage and determination of individuals and groups taking remarkable steps to combat corruption, often at great personal risk, TI said.
Past winners come from all walks of life and have included a schoolteacher and a pilot as well as public officials, activists and journalists. In 2013, awards were presented to Angolan human rights activist Rafael Marques de Morais and Chinese journalist and blogger Luo Changping.
The nominations are judged by a committee of 11 experts from the anti-corruption movement.
Nominations are open to the public and can be submitted here until June 1, 2014.
This year’s winners will receive their trophies after September 2014.
