Contest for writers, journalists and activists
The Global Democracy Award is a contest for everyone, but especially for independent journalists, writers, activists, artists, script writers and media-members. All adult citizens (persons or collectives) of the United States can take part in the competition.
The idea behind the contest is based on the factual information that results from an investigation (or creative approach) showing how the US government interferes in the affairs of other countries. Topics to consider include: Does Washington really want to help spread democracy, or is there something else behind the political (as well as economic, military and other) actions of the United States?; how the United States influences — through the manipulation of political elections, the organization of coups d’état and direct intervention; and the methodology of soft power.
The competition will be held between 5 nominees. The winner will be determined through a two-tiered transparent system: 50% through the readers (via voting on the site), and 50% by an independent jury (the list of members will be announced shortly).
