Does majority always have to win, and minority lose?
When someone is different than the most of their people in the community--different in their nation, or how they look, or their belief system, or not as healthy as others--are they considered imperfect, or more, a sinner?

Tolerance and acceptance.

World Anti-Discrimination Awards aimed to promote tolerance amongst many differences in small and global society, to raise acceptance, and ultimately to bring peace and harmony to our heterogenic global world.

We are looking for exceptional people, warriors for humanity, and filmmaker who fight for tolerance; or filming about a man or a woman who symbolize the fight for tolerance.

World Anti-Discrimination Awards is part of a big festival group, the International Film Festivals. Working closely with the Council of Creative People (Dewan Kreatif Rakyat) and International i-Hebat Volunteers, the Festival would give international recognition for a man or a woman who fights for tolerance and acceptance amongst diversity. He or she could be anyone with any background, any profession, or from all age.

Winning person profile will become our showcase based on their CVs.

The Festival Group prominent past winners include President Jimmy Carter, John Pope II, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, and many Hollywood stars: Alice Krige, Robin Shou, Dennis Rodman, Leonardo DiCaprio, Academy Award Winner Susan Sarandon, Martin Sheen, James Cromwell, David Anders, Julian Sands, Pearl Jam, U2, etc.
Let your film become an inspiration to others.
