Collaboration Award

The Collaboration Award recognises the importance of effective relationships and collaborations, within and across sectors and disciplines, in finding new opportunities to tackle difficult issues.

We are experiencing a move away from traditional NGO/donor links and "aid chains" to relationships across sectors and disciplines. This award focuses on emerging collaborations to highlight what is working and what is possible. It encourages stories of successful projects that demonstrate effective and even unexpected collaborations.

The submissions

This year’s submissions are organisations that have successfully worked in partnership on a project with an unusual mix of organisations and individuals. These partnerships have had to overcome particular obstacles, use technology creatively, find new ways to collaborate across geographical boundaries, or have had to take calculated risks with new collaborations that hadn't been tried before.
