Become a Juror



Since 2017, we present The Innovation in Politics Awards to recognise politicians who drive positive change in their communities.

All politicians from the democratic party spectrum from all Council of Europe Member states can submit their innovative projects in the following categories:
Quality of Life, Economy, Ecology, Education, Democracy, Digitalisation, Human Rights, Regional Development, and Community.
In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, we have added the new category Coping with Covid-19.

These Awards couldn’t go ahead without our committed citizens jury of 1,000 Europeans because it is them who select the finalists and winners.
Every year, they are invited to present their projects to an international audience at our conference Politics, Coffee & Cake. The winners are celebrated at the Awards Gala.

Join the jury and help us shine a light on the most courageous and creative politicians in Europe!
