Call for nominations for the UNESCO International Literacy Prizes 2020
Elinet supports the UNESCO International Literacy Prices Call for nominations and invites you to submit nominations for this year’s edition of the Prizes in English or French by 12 July 2020 at the very latest.
UNESCO is honoured to launch the call for nominations for the 2020 edition of the UNESCO International Literacy Prizes, on the theme “Teaching and learning literacy: The role of educators and changing pedagogies”. This theme is all the more relevant given the exceptional circumstances we are currently facing: to ensure the continuity of education for the duration of this pandemic, we are using innovative remote learning solutions on an unprecedented scale.

Established in 1967, these Prizes are composed of two UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prizes, sponsored by the Republic of Korea, and three UNESCO Confucius Prizes for Literacy, sponsored by the People’s Republic of China. Each year, they are awarded to individuals, governments, and non-governmental organizations in recognition of their contribution to the promotion of literacy.
The nominations should strictly take into consideration this year’s theme, as well as the specific thematic vision of each Prize, which is “the development and use of mother-tongue literacy education and training” for the UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prize, and “literacy amongst adults in rural areas and out-of-school youth, particularly girls and women” for the UNESCO Confucius Prize for Literacy.
The nomination process will take place via a dedicated online platform. All applicants can access the online application form by requesting access through this link
