From more than 2000 applications from 142 countries, three finalists have been selected for each of the 7 categories: mobilizer, storyteller, campaigner, connector, visualizer, includer and creative. In addition to the People’s Choice Award, #RunningDry is a finalist in the “campaigner” category for its powerful 100-day campaign to demonstrate a 100 per cent commitment to solving the global water crisis.
