call for Applications: The Elevate Prize


 

Deadline: 29 June 2020

Description

In the increasingly interconnected world, the ability to reach global audiences has never been more attainable. Mobile phones, the internet, and social media have enabled unprecedented levels of communication, information and knowledge exchange across cultures and geographies.

The Elevate Prize is seeking to find, support, and shine a spotlight on these Global Heroes, creating a multiplier effect that will allow them to more easily scale their work, impact more lives, and inspire others to tackle issues in their own communities – igniting a chain reaction of goodness across the world. Specifically, they are looking for extraordinary people leading high-impact projects and organizations who are:

  • Elevating opportunities for all people, especially those who are traditionally left behind
  • Elevating issues and their solutions by building awareness and driving action to solve the most difficult problems of our world
  • Elevating understanding of and between people through changing people’s attitudes, beliefs, and behavior

Eligibility

Specifically, The Elevate Prize is seeking Global Heroes who are:

Transformational and Innovative Leaders: Those who are addressing big, critical issues in their communities with powerful, tangible solutions. People with the talent, skills, background, and experience to create a lasting, positive impact, and inspire the hearts and minds of others, thereby helping to elevate others on a global scale.

Purpose-Driven: We want to know why you are doing this work, why the issues you are tackling are important to you and your community, results to date, and how you and your work can inspire others.

Problem Solvers: Are your ideas and implementation innovative, your messaging more effective? Do you have the ability to persevere and transform obstacles into opportunities? Have you been successful to date?

Radically Diverse: Whether you are an entrepreneur in Haiti, an artist in Bangladesh, a technologist in Germany, an activist in Brazil, or a doctor in Egypt, we want to hear from you! The Elevate Prize will select Global Heroes from across all regions and industries.

Resilient: We want to learn about your challenges and failures and how you have overcome them.

At a Tipping Point: You’ve already driven impact through your work and are well-positioned to do much more and inspire others to make change using the significantly larger audience and range of resources offered by The Elevate Prize.

A minimum prize of USD300,000 spread over two years, with potential for additional funding.
