The Honesty Oscars celebrate the stars who are working for transparency and accountability around the world. We all love an award-winning movie, but what's better than highlighting organizations, activists, and artists that are changing their countries for the better? Our nominees will engage and inspire you just as much as your favorite movie actors and actresses.
We care about this because transparency and accountability really matter. When money meant for health clinics go missing, or drugs meant for patients are stolen, people die. When funds allocated for education go astray or are mismanaged, children cannot learn. This is devastating because it perpetuates suffering, poverty, and inequality. That’s why we support and celebrate people that are finding creative ways to fix these problems.
So for the third year running, we’ve rolled out the red carpet! Join thousands of others to vote above for your favorite entries; spread the word on social media; and help us “name and fame” accountability change-makers! Black tie optional.
The Accountability Lab catalyzes a new generation of active citizens and responsible leaders around the world. We are an incubator for accountability changemakers to develop and implement ideas for integrity in their communities. By enabling people to use information and knowledge to hold people in power to account, we help to unleash positive social and economic change.
ONE is an international campaigning and advocacy organization of more than 7 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. ONE also raises public awareness and works with political leaders to demand greater transparency, so governments are accountable to their citizens.
We’re working to promote transparency and accountability around the world—but we can’t do it without you.
