CALL FOR ENTRIES

In September 2013, the inaugural Allard Prize for International Integrity will be awarded to an individual, movement or organization that has demonstrated exceptional courage and leadership in combating corruption, especially through promoting transparency, accountability and the rule of law. Along with the $100,000 prize, the recipient will also receive the Allard Prize Award, an original creative work as a symbol of the Allard Prize and its enduring legacy. Additional prizes and awards may also be given.

The largest single gift to University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Law and one of the largest donations ever to a Canadian law school establishes the Allard Prize. The Allard Prize reflects the full vision of UBC alumnus and philanthropist Peter Allard, whose generous gift also supported the building of the Faculty of Law’s new home, Allard Hall, and the creation of an online historical faculty archive.

The Allard Prize Committee enthusiastically invites artists and designers worldwide to submit their concepts and proposals for the creation of an original work that is symbolic of The Allard Prize and its ideals, now and into the future. Participate in this exceptional and rare event, the inauguration of The Allard Prize and its accompanying award.

The Allard Prize Award Competition winning entrant will receive CA$10,000, and recognition on the Allard Prize website and in other materials.

About the creative work:

The work must be original and symbolize the ideals of the Allard Prize, of exceptional courage and leadership in combating corruption, through the promotion of transparency, accountability and the rule of law.

The work must be contemporary and unique, and elegantly express the core values of the Allard Prize, whose recognition and contribution, nationally and internationally, will continue to grow and endure.

The work must be three-dimensional and measure no higher than 40cms or 15 inches.

The work must be constructed in permanent materials and be reproducible in a numbered edition to be awarded at successive Allard Prize ceremonies. Give consideration to the process and duration of production and the overall final weight for portability.
