2014 Open Government Awards
The first Open Government Awards are being presented to countries that have pioneered new approaches to citizen engagement in public policy and services. Thirty-three OGP countries nominated projects for the awards, which were assessed by an independent panel of judges. The winners that will be honoured on stage will serve as an inspiration to governments looking for new ideas to improve their own levels of public participation. The best new OGP commitments on citizen engagement from the most recent National Action Plans will also be celebrated at the event.
