For this years International Volunteer Day, we announce the launch of the first ever Volunteer Awards in Nepal to showcase the work and commitment done by volunteers in Nepal. The international theme of IVD 2016 is “Volunteers, the best among us" so let's choose the best and award their everyday dedication.
We have designed a competition called I volunteer-here's my story, where we request you to submit a story along with a photo that shows your or your organization's contribution as a volunteer in 2016 In 500 words, tell us what being a volunteer means to you. How did you contribute to the community? Where do you volunteer? Who do you look up to in that organization? Share with us a time in your volunteering experience of this year that you remember for life? What drives you? Please submit a photo and a story. You can find the form under www.unv.org.np and on the partner homepages from where you can download and send it to email@example.com with subject line "IVD 2016- I volunteer, here's my story". Please don't forget to mention your Name, Address, Contact Details and Organization affiliated to (if any) while submitting the stories and photos. Final submission date is Nov 25th, 2016.
The organiser of IVD 2016 reserve the right to remove a nomination from the competition if it is found fraudulent. You will be requested to provide proof of your work. Your submissions will be processed via a longlist and will be presented to a jury to finalize the winners. All nominees and nominators must abide by the decision of the judging panel and all decisions relating to the selection of the awards' finalists and winners are definitive and therefore no appeals will be entered into Selected submissions will be printed and exhibited at a photo exhibit on December 5th in Kathmandu and via social media.
