The beginning of the year is time for looking back, reporting and planning. It is time for a recognition of people and organisations that worked with devotion, widened their activities and started new ones, reached out more and different people. Such recognition is important for the society as the raised funds and donor programmes do not change life of people without the everyday, systematic and professional work of numerous motivated and responsible people.
The competition is for projects of civil organisations aimed at social inclusion, improving the living conditions, opportunities and quality of life of people in Bulgaria, implemented during 2023. 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.
By tradition well known professionals from business, media and culture will select the best projects assessing the nominations 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 spring 2024.
The awards are especially made by the prominent Bulgarian sculptor Georgi Capkunov.
