27 June 2014: deadline for submissions for the UNESCO International Literacy prizes

Every year during the ceremony of the International Literacy Day (8 September), UNESCO awards the International Literacy Prizes to partner organizations, institutions or individuals in recognition of their remarkable innovation and contribution in the field of literacy. UNESCO is launching the call for nominations of candidates for the 2014 edition under the theme “Literacy and Sustainable Development”.

The Prizes consist of the three UNESCO Confucius Prizes for Literacy and the two UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prizes, generously funded by the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea. Governments of Member States and Non-Governmental Organizations maintaining official relations with UNESCO are invited to submit their nominations.
