This annual Award is an opportunity for early-career scholars and practitioners working in water-related fields to publish an 800-1000 word article presenting their research, projects, or opinions to a global audience. The top three articles, as judged by a panel of leading water experts, will be awarded a monetary prize. The ten finalists will be published on the GWF site during December 2013. High-quality entries which are not selected as finalists may also be offered the opportunity to publish their articles at a later date. Participants are required to: - Submit an 800-1,000 word article relevant to the theme of ‘Water Cooperation’.
