The International Competition Network (ICN) and the World Bank Group are pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 – 2020 Competition Advocacy Contest. This contest aims to highlight the key role competition agencies, sector regulators and other governmental bodies or non-governmental organizations play in promoting competition by showcasing their advocacy success stories.
Submissions will undergo a rigorous assessment of the following criteria:
- Relevance of the competition issue tackled by the initiative;
- Success of the advocacy activity - results achieved;
- Impact and effects on markets, spillover effects and lessons learned;
- Advocacy strategy - creativity and originality, cooperation mechanisms deployed.
An independent panel will review the submissions and select the top stories.
Winning applicants will be invited to present their stories at a joint ICN-World Bank Group event, and winning stories will be featured in an ICN-World Bank Group Publication.
Competition agencies, sector regulators and other government bodies and non-governmental organizations promoting competition policy are welcome to apply.
