SozialMarie Audience Awards 2018: The Winners

In addition to its 15 Prizes for social innovation, SozialMarie bestows Audience Awards since 2012 every year. Every project submitted for SozialMarie 2018 from Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia takes part in this public voting. These are the countries which are as a whole part of SozialMarie’s submission area. The project with the most votes from each of these countries will receive an Audience Award. The four winners will be awarded a 3-minute image video about their projects. We will publish the videos mid-May on our webseite and our social media channels.
