Each project has been made possible by the hard work of people who have invested a lot for its successful implementation. It is important for all of us to pay public recognition to all those people and organisations who help others to make their lives easier and Bulgaria a better place to live. Because fundraising campaigns and donor organisations, funding programmes and raised funds would not make any change without the everyday, targeted and professional work of the numerous motivated and responsible people.
Civil organisations that have implemented projects aimed at improving the living conditions, opportunities and quality of life of groups of people or communities in disadvantaged position during 2017 are invited to participate in the competition. Projects implemented in towns, cities and villages are welcome regardless of size of budget, source of funding, scale of operation, type of activity or beneficiaries.
This year again the nominated projects will be evaluated on the basis of: achieved results, sustainability of the project activities, financial efficiency, participation of the target groups and the local communities, innovative services and the possibilities for implementing the project in other places around the country.
The full list of nominated projects will be presented on the Tulip Foundation web site. The awarded projects will be announced at a public ceremony in March 2018.
The awards are especially made by the prominent Bulgarian sculptor Georgi Capkunov.
