Accepting Entries Now Through 31 August 2018 for the World Bank’s Competition on the Changing Nature of Work.

The next World Bank World Development Report (WDR) 2019 will address The Changing Nature of Work. For the first time since the World Bank began publishing the WDR in 1978, the writing process has been completely transparent and open to the public. Every Friday afternoon, the latest draft is uploaded to the World Bank website, so that anyone with internet access has an opportunity to read it and engage with the team of authors.  As part of this process, the World Bank has launched a competition for university and college students to submit examples of governments, cities, firms, individuals, or any other actor taking advantage of opportunities created by technology and “the future of work”.

The Prizes:

The three best examples will be awarded prizes of $5,000 and be considered for inclusion in the final report.

Winners will be announced on October 1, 2018.
