PresentationSofia, May 16, 2019

On May 16 2019 in the new Cultura cinema, the Informational Portal for the Non-Governmental organizations in Bulgaria handed out its annual awards for a ninth consecutive year.
Georgi Genchev, leader of the NGO Portal team, elaborated: “The awards are a kind of transparency certificate, because the Portal gives the civil society organizations the opportunity to inform a wide audience regularly about their activities and achievements, to tell what they do, for whom it is important and what change they achieve. To state transparently their position on questions important for the society, to advocate and defend the rights of the people with and for whom they work.”
The awards of the Portal have no nominations and jury. The winners are selected among the Portal’s registered users based on site administrator statistics for each category. The total number of user publications for 2018 is over 1700.
In 2018 the Portal contains 13900 profiles of civil society organizations. An award is given to the profile of an active organization which had the most visits in 2018. The profiles contain information about which field the organization works in, who manages it, what are its activities, contact information and also the materials it posted in the Portal.
One of the most popular segments of the NGO Portal is “Work and Volunteering” in which in 2018 a total of 140 career announcements were published – for work, internships, volunteering. In the “Most read Portal announcement” is decided which organizations have attracted the biggest interest towards their announcement.
