Offer: Call for Nominations: Yayori Award for Women Peace Activists

The deadline of Yayori Award nomination for 2011 is coming soon. We
encourage activists and organizations from Asia to send many nominations
to honour grassroots women's activism for human rights and peace.

The Yayori Award focuses on women activists, journalists, and artists
who work at the grassroots level with socially marginalized peoples in
order to create a 21st century free from war and discrimination against
women. Younger activists are especially encouraged to apply so that the
Yayori Award can support future leaders. We will select an individual or
a group from mainly the Asian region and offer an award certificate and
a prize amount of 500,000 yen.

In principle, for winners of the Yayori Award from overseas, the
Women's Fund for Peace and Human Rights will cover only transportation
and accommodation expenses to attend the presentation ceremony in Tokyo.

Nomination deadline:
August 25, 2011
Selection announcement:
October 17, 2011
Award presentation ceremony:
December 3, 2011
