Olive Morris Memorial Awards 2021
We are delighted to invite people to make nomination for the Olive Morris Memorial Awards 2021. The Awards were created as an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of Olive as it lives on in the work of a new generation of young women activists.
We believe that it is important to support, celebrate and amplify the voices of young women of African and Asian descent, who are working in the same spirit and radical tradition of Olive’s grassroots activism.
Olive Morris Memorial Awards will consist of five awards of £500 each.
We encourage all those who meet the criteria to nominate themselves or others to receive an award.
The criteria are as follows:
• Nominees must be engaged in radical grassroots political work. For example, as organisers, advocates, activists, artists, or being themselves victims of repression for their political activities.
• the Olive Morris Memorial Awards are open to all women between 16 and 27 years of age, who are of African or Asian descent (and this is meant in a broad geopolitical sense that can include for example Palestinian), currently living in the UK, regardless of nationality and immigration status.
Please complete the nomination form here.
Anyone can nominate a woman for an award, provided they complete all the information requested in the nomination form.
The deadline for nominations is 27 August 2021. The awards will be announced in October and an awards ceremony held in November.
