Submit a Project


We present The Innovation in Politics Awards since 2017 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: Democracy, Climate Protection, Democracy Technologies, Government Improvement, Social Cohesion, Local Development, Education, and Party Innovation.
  • Language: Please submit your project description in English. Submissions in other languages will be accepted but will then have to be translated into English by us so our citizens’ jury can understand and evaluate them. This will slow down the application process. If you are able to submit your text in English, this would make it easier for us.
  • Project submission is free of charge. All finalists and winners will be invited to participate at an exchange conference and a gala event.
