The Communication for Social Change Award

Applications have opened for the 2014 Communication for Social Change Award. This is the only award of its type, and is open “specifically those that have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to using communication to transform and empower marginalised communities” (http://www.uq.edu.au/ccsc/csc-award)

If you or your organisation has made a significant contribution in some way, or you know of others that have, it is worthwhile applying for this award. Winners of the award receive a $2500 towards travel to the awards ceremony, that will also help promote the impact and highlight the importance that communication projects have in development efforts.

If you are interested, or know someone who is, please refer them to this link: 2014 CSC Award.
