Futures Without Violence and Avon Foundation for Women seek to recognize organizations worldwide whose strategic communications tools are changing our communities, institutions, policies, and behaviors to prevent and eliminate violence against women and children. Submit your innovative material to the X-CHANGE by January 31, 2014 for a chance to win a Communications Award!
WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?
Up to five awards totaling $25,000 will be announced, timed to coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8, 2014. The Avon Foundation for Women makes these awards possible to help organizations around the world continue their work to prevent violence against women.
Who is eligible and how do I enter? What is the deadline?
Any organization working to end violence against women and children that submits its communications and campaign materials to the X-CHANGE between February 5, 2013 through January 31, 2014 is eligible.
How will the submissions be judged?
An international panel of experts will review all eligible submissions for outstanding materials or campaigns that showcase best practices for changing social norms and behaviors to end gender-based violence. Innovation, creativity, and impact are important considerations. For information on last year’s winners and examples of their work, click here.
When are finalists notified?
Finalists will be notified by mid-February 2014.
Why Should I Join the X-CHANGE?
Communications are a potent force for changing attitudes and behaviors within communities and individuals—raising awareness, sounding the alarm, and spreading the news about what to do and where to go for help. Sharing the best practices from around the world benefits all of our efforts so that women and girls, men, and boys can live free from violence.
