Prize D4D consists of three categories:

  • The innovative idea / startup – ‘iStartUp’ 
  • The success story – ‘iStandOut’
  • The public award – ‘iChoose’

Everyone with an innovative idea or success story about digitisation for development can participate in the Prize D4D.

Both in the category 'iStartUp' (innovative idea) and the category 'iStandOut' (success story), the jury nominates three initiatives and one of them is selected as the winner. In the category 'iChoose', a third winner is chosen online by the public.

Prize D4D is a biennial initiative of the Royal Museum of Central Africa (RMCA) with the support of the Belgian Directorate-General for Development Cooperation (DGD).
