The Award will be given to the local or regional government candidate that wins a competitive call process, open to direct or indirect UCLG members. Indirect UCLG members include those local and regional governments that are members of an association or federation of local or regional governments that is in turn a member of UCLG.
The Award will recognise an original policy, programme or project that explicitly includes the principles of the Agenda 21 for culture.
The action awarded should count on, at least, two years of implementation and have documented proof of the impact and the successes achieved.
A city, local or regional government will only be able to present one application.
