The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) has launched the Blog Competition 2013. Previously known as the Youth Essay Competition, this year’s contest targets the growing global ranks of bloggers and all submissions should therefore be written as a blog entry. Seasoned and new bloggers from around the world are invited to submit blog posts about how democratic and economic reforms play a role in international development.
They will have to submit an entry of less than 750 words on the following categories :
• How can social media empower citizens to participate in a democratic dialogue on constructive reforms? • What experiences from other countries can guide the role of youth in your country’s democratic and economic development? • What story or personal experience can you share to illustrate the need and possible solutions for democratic and economic reforms in your country?
The submissions can be either unpublished work or previously published on the author’s own blog.
Authors of the best blog posts for each category will receive a $250 honorarium, three runners-up will each receive a $100 honorarium, and three third place winners will each receive $75 honorarium. CIPE will publish all nine winning entries on its blog and as a part of its Economic Reform Feature Service article series.
Deadline: 14 October 2013 at 11:00 PM (EDT)
