Voting has now closed for the N-Peace Awards 2016.
In the coming week we will carry out a second routine verification process to: check confirmed votes were made with legitimate email accounts and remove votes that cannot be validated as genuine emails.
After this, the selection panel will make their final decisions between the top candidates from each of the categories.
N-Peace Awardees will be announced in late October! In the meantime we encourage you to continue to read and share the personal stories of the women leaders and peace advocates below.
