In 2018 the Bank Austria Social Prize will be presented for the ninth time. Outstanding Austrian social projects will again be honoured this year. At a regional level - i.e. in all federal states - the Award will be presented for the sixth time.

Robert Zadrazil, CEO of UniCredit Bank Austria, emphasised: “The Bank Austria Social Prize has now become established throughout Austria as an important initiative in the social sector. The objective of our social engagement is to highlight extraordinary social projects and enable them to be publicised. As part of our commitment we will donate 81,000 Euro for the best projects in Austria in 2018.”

Total prize money amounting to 81,000 Euro throughout Austria
Austria will decide and choose placements - everyone can vote on the Bank Austria Social Prize website from 4 July onwards. The prize money amounting to 9,000 Euro per federal state will be divided between the three finalists. The winning project will therefore receive 6,000 Euro, the runner-up 2,000 Euro and the third placed project 1,000 Euro.

The winners in each federal state will initially be chosen in a multi-stage process by a regional jury. “This year we are also inviting all customers and in general interested members of the public to cast their vote on our website from 4 July to 6 September and therefore support each favoured project”, said Robert Zadrazil.
