    Women’s World Summit Foundation, or WWSF, is an international, non-profit, humanitarian NGO, working to implement women’s and children’s rights and the UN development agenda.

    WWSF is seeking nominations for their Prize for Women’s Creativity in Rural Life. Awarded since 1994 by WWSF, the Prizes honour women and women’s groups around the world that exhibit exceptional creativity, courage and commitment to improving the quality of life in rural communities.

    Nominees should be women and women’s groups currently active in rural life whose efforts have not yet been acknowledged by other awards.

    The Prizes are $1,000 US per laureate and $3,000 US for specific African women’s organizations. WWSF will honour five to 10 creative rural women and women’s groups around the world with the awards.

    The deadline for nominations is April 30. All nominations must be sent through the postal system (see link to information below). Email nominations are not accepted.
