Avon Comm Awards: Call for Entries

The Communications X-Change, sponsored by Avon Foundation for Women, is an innovative digital library that enables people across the globe to share communications materials and campaigns to end violence against women and children.

Organizations from almost every continent have submitted and shared their incredible materials, and now we invite you to do the same.

By submitting material (posters, pamphlets, video, etc.) to the Communications X-Change by February 4, 2013, your organization will be eligible to participate in the Avon Communications Awards. Recipients will be awarded grants between $5,000 to $10,000 to further their critical work.

Submitting to the X-Change is easy. Just visit http://xchange.futureswithoutviolence.org/ and upload your digital content for the world to see and experience.

This year’s Avon Communications Awards will salute groups whose strategic communications tools are changing communities, policies, institutions, and behaviors. Material submitted to the Communications X-Change will be reviewed by an international panel of judges.

Prizes totaling $25,000 will be awarded at an event in New York City timed to observe International Women’s Day (March 8) and the 57th Commission on the Status of Women, focusing this year on how to end violence against women.
