International Development Achievement award 2011 _ Deadline: 31-Jul-2011

The Guardian International Development Achievement award is designed to recognise some of the unsung heroes of international development. These are people who have made a profound contribution to the alleviation of poverty, working above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference to the lives of some of the world's poorest people. This contribution can be made either directly - through their own work or activities - or indirectly as a result of others using their achievements to improve their lives (e.g. technological inventions or agricultural research).

Judging Criteria
The Guardian International Development Achievement award aims to honour the unsung heroes of international development; those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a positive difference to the lives and livelihoods of some of the world's most marginalised people.

Nominations are welcome for individuals of any nationality and based anywhere in the world, who - through achievements in work or life - have made an exceptional contribution to efforts to alleviate poverty in the developing world.

Nominees for the Award will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

• The extent to which their activities and achievements have had a demonstrable and positive impact on poverty alleviation – either directly or indirectly

• The sustainability of their achievements in terms of longevity, legacy and impact

• The extent to which the nominee's activities and achievements have changed social situations, public attitudes, structures or policies that may be behind the poverty, exclusion or disempowerment of the people affected

• The ways in which the nominee has demonstrated inspirational leadership

How to nominate
The competition is open to individuals (NOT organisations) of any nationality and from anywhere in the world who, through achievements in work or life, have made an exceptional contribution to efforts to alleviate poverty in the developing world.

After the deadline, 31 July 2011, a highly qualified judging panel will select a shortlist of five finalists. Descriptions of the five finalists will be featured on this site and Guardian readers and site visitors will be invited to vote for the one they think most deserves the award. The public voting process will run between 5 September - 26 September 2011.

The winner will be announced jointly with the winners of the Guardian International Development Journalism Competition 2011 at an awards ceremony in London.
