Submit a Project
Submit your own project

To submit a political project for the innovation in politics awards, please complete this submission form.

Important information - please read

We are looking for innovative political projects, not actual inventions. A project should be groundbreaking in its own environment – regardless of whether it might be considered ordinary elsewhere.
All politicians in Europe, elected or appointed, and active at the time their project was implemented, are eligible to participate. We are aware of the fact that political work in Europe takes various forms – if you are not sure whether this definition applies to you, please submit your project nevertheless!
Language: you may submit the project description in an official language of any member country of the council of Europe. However, all project descriptions not received in English will be translated into English by us, so that the jury of 1,000 European citizens can evaluate them. 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 for the awards can also participate in the gala event in Vienna on 6 December 2017 free of charge. Finalists are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.
We have a deadline: the deadline for project submissions is 31 August 2017.
