November 15, 2008: Deadline for submissions to knowledge sharing awards

Practical Action, a British NGO that aims to demonstrate and advocate for the sustainable use of technology to reduce poverty in developing countries, is holding a contest which offers an award for media messages that deliver knowledge “at the right time and place.” The purpose of the contest is to promote innovative methods to identify existing community knowledge assets and gaps, improve knowledge sharing systems, and develop knowledge presentations appropriate for diverse audiences.

Radio practitioners can enter the contest in the “Non-electronic means and mass media category.” Entries must include a short description of the content of the knowledge presentation, how it was delivered, and the cultural context and relation to traditional methods of communication in targeted communities. An entry can be submitted on a CD-ROM or by e-mail (if the total size in electronic file is less than 5MB), by regular mail, or handed over to one of Practical Action’s offices.

For more information, visit: http://practicalaction.org/?id=knowledgepresentation or contact Zbigniew Mikolajuk (zbigniew.mikolajuk@practicalaction.org.uk) or Dawn McGahey (Dawn.McGahey@practicalaction.org.uk) with any questions.
