The CID Collaboration Award is a new award introduced at the CID Annual Conference 2019. The award recognises and celebrates the importance of effective relationships and collaborative thinking within and across the sector to tackle difficult development challenges and global issues.
We want to hear from CID Members and Associate Members that have successfully worked together on a project with a mix of organisations and individuals – for example, local entrepreneurs, governments, funders, private sector, consultants, academics or researchers.
A successful collaboration could mean you have overcome particular obstacles, used technology creatively, or found new ways to collaborate across geographical boundaries. You may have had to compromise or take calculated risks with new collaborations that had not been tried before.
Covid-19 and its impact has made this year especially challenging for people around the globe, including those working in the development sector and those who are impacted by the work we do. CID is aware that a number of its Members and Associate Members have successfully worked together on projects with a mix of organisations and individuals – for example, local entrepreneurs, governments, funders, private sector, consultants, academics or researchers. A successful collaboration could mean you have overcome particular obstacles, used technology creatively, or found new ways to collaborate across geographical boundaries. You may have had to compromise or take calculated risks with new collaborations that had not been tried before.
We commend our Members and Associate Members for joining forces with other organizations and individuals and would like to hear more about these collaborations. Nominate yourself, your organization or your partners now for the CID Collaboration Award 2020! Please find the Application Form below.
The 2019 Collaboration Award was awarded to ChildFund, Save the Children and World Vision, along with UNICEF, for their work on the Ending Violence Against Children initiative.
Your Application Form will be judged on the following criteria:
- The narrative - how compellingly you tell the project's story
