National Geographic and Changemakers Announce Geotourism
Innovation Competition

Deadline: May 20, 2009

National Geographic and Ashoka Changemakers ( http://www.changemakers.net/ ) have announced the second annual global Geotourism Challenge. This year's theme is Power of Place
-- Sustaining the Future of Destinations.

This collaborative competition is designed to identify and show- case innovators, both individuals and organizations, that direct- ly or indirectly promote tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place -- its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents.

The competition is open to all types of organizations (charitable, private, or public) from all countries. Entries must describe how a program or activity is new and different. Projects must be beyond the idea stage and able to prove success on the local, regional, or global level. The innovation should demonstrate the potential to be successfully replicated in other places and to become self-sustaining.

Competition entries will be posted online and made available for anyone to view and collaborate with by providing new ideas and connections to new resources, and by asking insightful questions.
A panel of judges will select finalists from the entries, and the Changemakers community will then vote online to select three award winners. The three winners will each receive a cash prize of $5,000.

Entries must be submitted in English or Spanish. Visit the Changemakers Web site for complete competition information and to nominate or enter a program.
