  • short term projects running between July 2016 and June 2017 (part of the project can have run outside of this period, but projects should not be more than three years in total length), and
  • shares a community’s culture or message to an audience outside their community, and
  • resolves, or aims to resolve, an issue affecting a large community


Individuals, community groups, organisations and local governments. Multiple organisations working together are also eligible. Self-nominations are accepted.
