UNESCO International Literacy Prizes 2022 for Innovation in Literacy.
All champions in the field of literacy learning are encouraged to apply and nominating entities to be ready to engage and nominate their favourite candidates from around the world. The theme aims to present the different existing learning spaces (work, school, family, learning centers) and highlight the relation and various interconnections among them. Since 1967, the UNESCO International Literacy Prizes have rewarded excellence and innovation in the field of literacy. Over 506 projects and programmes around the world have already received recognition and support for their excellent work.
- The application is open to all governments, non-governmental organizations and individuals who, through projects and programmes, contribute to the promotion and advancement of literacy learning.
- All applications should be submitted to the nominating entities, the National Commission for UNESCO in the country of the programme, or an NGO that is in an official partnership with UNESCO, who are encouraged to communicate the nominated individuals, institutions and organizations to UNESCO.
- The nominations will be assessed by an independent International Jury, composed of five experts on the basis of the selection criteria. Based on the recommendations of the International Jury, the Director-General of UNESCO will select the finalists to be awarded at the occasion of International Literacy Day on 8 September.
