2001 APC BETINHO COMMUNICATIONS PRIZE: Closing date for the $7,500 USD
prize - to recognize the use of the Internet for social justice - is
September 24
The $7,500 USD APC Betinho Prize is offered to non-profit
organisations, community-based groups, coalitions, working groups or
social movements anywhere in the world that have successfully used
information and communication technologies (ICTs) as an essential
ingredient in their development work.
Last year, over 160 inspiring projects were nominated for the prize
including a Website recruiting and orienting volunteers to participate
in the reconstruction of ex-Yugoslavia; an information network
connecting indigenous communities in Mexico; and a child's rights data
gathering initiative in Mozambique. The inaugural winner, the Max
Foundation, is a life-saving online support network functioning in
English, Spanish and Portuguese for the families of children suffering
from leukaemia and host of Latin America's first online bone marrow
tissue registry.
Nominations for the Prize will be accepted until September 24, 2001.
Detailed eligibility criteria and a nomination form are available
