Antoine Nehme Foundation proudly grants the Incognito Awards as to celebrate the unacknowledged, the forgotten activists working at the nexus of environmentalism and social betterment who have not been recognized.

    The Incognito Awards’ purpose is recognize activists in Lebanon and beyond that have demonstrated extraordinary effort, innovation, leadership, best practices and excellence in providing service to humanity which may have been overlooked.

    “no victory is without its unsung heroes”

    The Incognito Awards will not only recognize prominent activists, but also smaller NGO’s in the Arab World whose exemplary service and success may have gone unnoticed and unappreciated.

    This ANF Award is for NGO Excellence and was established to honor local activists and NGO’s, community-based organizations and civil society organizations that may be national models of excellence, improving their communities and utilizing best practices in non-profit management.

    Although we seek to identify the unsung heroes of the Arab World whose exemplary service and success may have gone unnoticed and unappreciated, the selection process is based on merit, following a one-time award of US$ 5,000 and a press release. These funds must be used towards the strengthening of the organization’s structure and/or education of its staff.

    The deadline for receipt of completed applications is December 12, 2022.

    The winner will be honored during an awards ceremony during ANF’s annual gathering.


    There are a range of sponsorship opportunities available at the ANF’s annual gathering. To enquire about sponsoring the awards, please contact us.
