Call for Applications: The Freedom Prize – “Our candidate, their fight”

Deadline: 15 January 2019

Applications are now open for the Freedom Prize – “Our candidate, their fight” which is an opportunity for groups of young people supervised by an adult to highlight the work of a public figure or an organisation and their recent fight for freedom.

The Freedom Prize pays homage to all those who fought and continue to fight for the ideal of universal peace, created by the Normandy Region, in partnership with the academic authorities and the International Institute of Human Rights and Peace. Focused on the meaning and values of the Allied landings, the Freedom Prize gives young people all over the world the opportunity to choose an exemplary public figure or organisation, committed to the fight for freedom.

Applicants need to fill out a form which encourages reasoned work and documentary research, prompting participants to question their candidate’s chosen fight and its context. This call for applications is also an opportunity to promote fights for freedom which have received little media coverage. In addition to this form, young participants can also choose to produce short videos presenting their candidate and to create artistic creative work on the theme of freedom or their chosen fight. This work may be used to promote the finalist candidates for the digital voting campaign and may be used at the prize-giving ceremony and on social networks. The groups which have sent the most relevant and thorough “Our candidate, their fight” applications will also be invited to the prize-giving ceremony in June 2019 which will be attended by the winner.

Criteria

  • Any group of young people aged 15 to 25, supervised by an adult.
  • Groups can participate as part of an educational, higher education or training program, through a charitable organization or on their own initiative.
  • An application may be submitted by several institutions, as part of international twinning or pairing schemes or any other partnership.

How to Apply

Applicants can download the form “Our candidate, their fight” via given website.
