Banner: 2019 Nomination Call - Hints, tips and help

Zero Project HQ is a hub of activity as we begin receiving nominations for 2019. It is great to begin interacting with our whole community, and we’re excited already to speak to some new names for this year!

We are here and waiting to answer any queries that you may have, and to give you some tips for making your nomination stand out! But what you may not know, is we have many sources available to you at the touch of a button, which can help you decide whether to make a nomination and to improve your chances of being selected:

The 2019 Nomination Video – Here, we tell you what topics we are looking at this year and give you some tips to help you when writing your nomination. The video can be accessed via YouTube, Facebook, or on the 2019 Nomination Platform

Question and Answers Document – Accessed via the nomination platform, the Q&A is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Russian and Arabic and answers the key questions you may have about the nomination process.

Themes Document – Also accessed via the platform, and also available in the six languages, this document gives you a breakdown of the themes that we are encouraging nominations from. It splits the overall topic of Independent Living and Political participation into 5 main themes, each with subtopics and keywords to give you an idea of what will be selected.
