Stelios Philanthropic Foundation organizes for an eighth consecutive year the Stelios Bi-Communal Awards 2016 and submission of applications is now open through Facebook.
The total amount for this year's awards is greater than ever after Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou will be offering for the first time € 500.000, rewarding a total of 50 teams that can win €10.000 each, with a total amount of two million euros been awarded since 2009.
All forms of human cooperation between Greek-Cypriots and Turkish-Cypriots are eligible to apply through Facebook, including business, sciences, arts, sport, NGO work and life! The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony in October 2016 in Nicosia.
The deadline for application submission through Facebook is the 15th of July, 2016.
Notably, for the first time this year, in order to promote more regular contact and co-operation between the two communities with the ultimate objective to promote lasting peace on the island, applications will only be accepted via the “Stelios Philanthropic Foundation” Facebook page online. All applicants are expected to like the page Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, join the group Stelios Cyprus Bi-Communal Awards 2016 that now counts up to 1000 members and make “Facebook friends” with members of the other community on the island.
Through the page and the group, interested parties will be constantly informed for announcements of actual events at the bi-communal cafes in Nicosia during the year where they can meet members of the other community and apply together. Past winners are always welcome to reapply. Multiple applications of each team member are also welcome with different members of the other community.
