Experiences from the Field is a platform where practitioners and policymakers can exchange information about the design, implementation, and impact of projects that are aimed to improve labor market conditions (e.g., training programs, improved access to finance, reforms of the business environment, or active labor market programs).

Users can search the projects by thematic categories, geographic coverage, project dates, types of project materials, and methodology of evaluation.

To help promote and showcase innovative and promising projects, Experiences from the Field, will reward projects that demonstrate results, inspire new ideas, and provide practical lessons about project design and implementation.

The JKP, through its partner IZA, is offering a $5,000 award in each of the following categories:

  • Most Recommended (based on users’ ratings)
  • Most Promising Approach
  • Best in Addressing Political Economy and Implementation Challenges

The JKP community will vote for submissions using the “rate” feature on the JKP website to select the Most Recommend winner, and a committee made up of members of the JKP partner organizations will select winners for the other two categories.

Submissions: Submissions can be made online at jobsknowledge.org or completed forms sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with the title “Experiences from the Field Competition Entry.”

If you have links to project documents and websites as well as any multimedia presentations that describe your project, please include them.  Submissions will be screened prior to posting for suitable content.

To be considered for the first round of prizes, forms must be submitted by 5 PM EST, December 15, 2012.  Remember – the sooner a project is posted, the more time it has to accumulate online votes.  Winners will be invited and flown in to the awards ceremony at The World Bank (Date TBC).
