Integrity Idol is a global campaign run by citizens in search of honest government officials. It aims to champion integrity by “naming and faming” bureaucrats as positive role models. In doing so it hopes to inspire the next generation of responsible leaders.
Through a nationwide media campaign, citizens are invited to nominate public officials that have demonstrated integrity in their personal and professional conduct. The nominees will be evaluated by an esteemed panel of independent judges, who narrow down the nominees to a final shortlist of five Integrity Idols. The nomination period will be open from 12th June to 31st July 2018.
After the panel of judges selects the final five Integrity Idols, the stories of the idols, including their background, their work, the obstacles they have had to overcome, the impact of their conduct and their aspirations are then filmed and broadcast on electronic and social media. In collaboration with media partner Newsfirst, these stories will amplified and watched nationwide. Citizens can then vote for their favourite through SMS short-codes and the finalist with the most votes will be recognised as the winner of Integrity Idol 2018.
