A TOTAL GIVING OF €2.75M SINCE 2009
TO PROMOTE LASTING PEACE ON THE ISLAND
THE CYPRUS BI-COMMUNAL AWARDS
NOW BIGGER THAN EVER AT €750,000 FOR THIS YEAR
GOING TO 75 TEAMS (€10,000 EACH)



The Stelios Bi-communal Award is designed to reward people as individuals and how they cooperate - it is not about corporate entities.
Watch out on our page for announcements of actual events at our bi-communal cafes in Nicosia during the year where you can meet members of the other community and apply together. 

In order to qualify and get the chance to win one of the 75 prizes of €10,000  per team, you must meet the following criteria:

Each team must be formed or represented (in case the cooperation involves more than two individuals) by one Greek-Cypriot and one Turkish-Cypriot.
All forms of human cooperation between team members are eligible, including business, arts, sport, NGO's, work & "partners in life" .
Past winners are always welcome to reapply if all is going well.
Multiple applications of each team member are also welcome with different members of the other community.
 
We will only accept applications via Facebook!
Join our facebook group Stelios Cyprus Bi-Communal Awards 2017 to download the Application Form.
Submit the PDF document back to us on our Facebook page via the inbox of the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation and type in the main body of the message: Cyprus2017.
The deadline for submitting the applications is the 30th of June, 2017.

All applications will be reviewed by representatives of the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation; finalists and winners will be chosen by Stelios Haji-Ioannou. Up to 75 winning teams will be awarded a personal check of €10,000 by Stelios Haji-Ioannou.
Stelios reserves the right to give less than 75 Awards per year or even none if the caliber of the applicants does not meet the Award standards and criteria. In such event, Stelios will re-issue the award announcement and guidelines in 2018. 

The Stelios Bi-communal Award in Cyprus is in no way linked to any other similar initiatives and is not endorsed or sponsored by any official government entity. It is purely a private initiative as part of Stelios' desire to give back to his country of origin.
