In conjunction with the 8th World Chambers Congress taking place in Doha, Qatar April 22-25 2013, the International Chamber of Commerce has launched its newest addition of the World Chambers Competition. This competition is the only global awards program to recognize innovative projects undertaken by chambers from all over the world. Including organizations from both the developed world and emerging countries, the 2013 World Chambers Competition provides a unique opportunity for chambers to showcase originality and ingenuity.
In this year’s competition, judges are looking for the best projects in the categories of corporate social responsibility, international trade, small business, youth entrepreneurship, and Best Unconventional project. From service provision for specific groups to projects that do not typically fall within chamber activities, the World Chambers Competition is looking for the most innovative and inspiring programs. To qualify, any project submitted must have been in operation within a 24 month period preceding January 2013 and applications must be submitted by November 30, 2012. Finalists will be chosen and notified by February 2013 and will be judged before a jury at the World Chambers Conference in April. For more information and to apply, visit the ICC website.
