The finalists were selected by a jury of international experts (see photo below) from among 30 semi-finalists covering a wide range of sectors and activities. These, in turn, were selected from a pool of 729 eligible entries from 39 countries. All semi-finalists participated in an intensive training and coaching program including the Academy in Cluj-Napoca to develop their initiatives.

The three winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on 8 November 2018 in Brussels and will each receive a €50.000 prize to further develop their projects.

The jury would also like to thank all semi-finalists and encourage them to keep up the good work. All semi-finalists are invited to a fundraising training and to meet international investors at the Funders Fair that will take place in Brussels on the day of the Awards Ceremony. They are also entitled and encouraged to re-enter the Competition next year for a chance to win the Impact Prize.
