Advocacy Campaign Award
The Advocacy Campaign Award celebrates strategic and inspiring campaigns that raise public awareness of international development causes.
We want to celebrate organisations that contribute to ending poverty worldwide by promoting policies based on equality, human rights and social justice that work for the poor.
"It was fantastic to have our advocacy work recognised by winning the Bond award. It's helped boost Traidcraft's profile within the sector and provided media opportunities to explain our work. It enhances our credibility as a professional organisation having an impact at the highest levels."
