2016 Regional Liberty Awards

The 2016 Regional Liberty Awards annually recognize think tanks that have made important contributions to improving the landscape for enterprise and entrepreneurship in their regions.

Atlas Network will select one winner from each of the following world regions: Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East and North Africa. To be considered for a Regional Liberty Award, organizations must complete this application form in full. While we are happy to receive applications that focus on long-running projects, our judges will prioritize those applications that can document impact that has been achieved within the last two years. As such, eligible think tanks compete with others in their region on the basis of whether one of its specific projects has a demonstrable and measurable impact in liberating enterprise and entrepreneurship. Successful applicants will have achieved impact and made innovative contributions to free enterprise research and advocacy.

Winners of the 2016 Regional Liberty Awards will receive $5,000 and be honored at the Regional Liberty Forums to be held in Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East and North Africa. All applicants and winners are still eligible and encouraged to apply for the Templeton Freedom Award.
