After three successful editions of the Elevate Awards in 2012, 2013 and 2014, the Elevate Festival hands out the Elevate Awards again in 2015. They are a commendation for people and their projects, who are actively working for social, ecological and/or economical justice and the improvement of the life circumstances of people and mother nature.

The public call for nominees was taking place from May 11th to June 30th 2015.

Characterized by innovation and an orientation on the environmental and cultural commons of our planet, these positive awards should be a recognition of initiatives and the people running them. Since this award carries "Elevate" in its name, it will only be given to projects, which have not yet received comparable other international recognitions or decorations.

There are three categories: The International Elevate Award, the Elevate Award Steiermark and the Elevate Artivism Award.

After the public call for nominees there is a selection process to find the five top-contestants in every category, which will be presented to the media in the form of video-portraits. The winning project will be chosen by the audience in a public voting process in October 2015 (Elevate Artivism Award and Elevate Award Steiermark).

The International Elevate Award winner will be selected by the international Jury. The awards will be handed out at the Elevate Awards Show on October 25th at the Dom im Berg venue in Graz.

The prize money for the Awards is generated by the "Sweet Crowdfunding" partnership with world famous chocolatier Josef Zotter. A specially created "Sexy Vegan" chocolate is on sale now and one Euro is donated with each chocolate sold.

This award initiative is supported by the governor's office of the state of Styria, as well as the culture department of the city of Graz. Media partners: Kleine Zeitung, FM4 and ORF Steiermark.
