World Challenge 2011 is a competition organised by BBC World News Limited ("BBC World News") and Newsweek, aimed at finding projects or small businesses from around the world that have shown enterprise and innovation at a grassroots level ("Competition").
We want to hear from our viewers about the social entrepreneurs who are making a difference without costing the earth. It could be you or someone you know.
All nominations, entries and votes related to the Competition must comply with these terms and conditions ("World Challenge Competition Rules"); failure to do so may result in disqualification.
The winner of the World Challenge 2011 will receive a grant of US$20,000. The second and third Finalist will each receive a grant US$10,000. The grants are awarded to projects/small businesses for their own use and furtherance of their enterprise only.
In the event of a tie for first place, the top two Finalists will receive a grant of US$15,000 each and the third Finalist will receive a grant of US$10,000.
Each grant will be awarded to the relevant project/small business and one person will be nominated by each project/small business to accept the grant on its behalf ('Representatives'). BBC World News, accepts no obligation to any other people linked to the project/small business.
The Representatives will be invited to attend a ceremony at a venue in the Netherlands to receive the grants. The grants will be awarded by BBC World News. The ceremony will be filmed and shown as the last programme in the World Challenge series on the BBC World News channel (“Ceremony”) and as a feature on Newsweek magazine.
Each Representative will receive one fully paid economy class return flight to the Netherlands, accommodation for the duration of the Ceremony, and transfers to and from the Ceremony. The Representatives will be responsible for ensuring that they fulfil Dutch entry requirements, including without limitation, being in possession of a valid passport and obtaining any visa that they may require. In addition the Representatives will bear all other expenses incurred on the trip, including without limitation: any necessary vaccinations, insurance and unlisted transfers, phone calls and other services within the accommodation and any shopping and meal expenses.
BBC World News reserves the right to cancel or change the details of the Ceremony without prior notice.
