Transparency International, the global anti-corruption organisation, has opened nominations for its 2007 Integrity Awards that honour the "unsung heroes of the fight against corruption."

The three awards recognise individuals and organisations from around the world that have risked their lives and their livelihoods - in the name of justice, transparency and integrity - to unmask corruption and challenge people and institutions that wield enormous power.

Past winners include journalists, public prosecutors, accountants, government officials and civil society leaders. This year's awards will be presented in conjunction with International Anti-Corruption Day in December.

Nominations for the 2007 Integrity Awards will be accepted until 30 September 2007. When considering nominations, the awards committee also looks for geographical and occupational balance.
