The 13th annual Award – Open x Close assesses the openness of authorities and public institutions. In previous year we have received a record number of 142 nominations, which is extraordinarily high number even in an international comparison.
The Award has a strong motivational impact on the development of standards of good practice in the field of transparency of public administration institutions as well as promoting preventive anti-corruption measures. The media regularly cover the Award and specific awarded cases (both negative and positive). Publicly available nominations (more than 700 over the existance of the Award) serves as a reservoir of good and bad practice for both the authorities, the government and the media.
