VPL Prize

The 4th VPL biennale is organising the traditional Global VPL Prize

Focus for applications or nominations 

The focus of applications is open to the submission of any project, programme, process, document or description of activity that has significantly advanced the cause of Validation of Prior Learning (VPL). The main themes of the 4th VPL biennale serve as inspiration for applications.

Applications need to demonstrate: 

  • A description of the process and results
  • To what extent the work/activities have advanced the cause of VPL

Applicants may use any medium they choose, e.g., written documents, photographs, sound or videos to make their case, as long as a written description of their work is also provided (max 10 pages).

The assessment will be based on the written document. 

Applications, including videos and photographs may be published (with the consent of the author) on the conference website regardless of whether their project receives a prize or not – in order to advocate the cause of VPL. The selected winners will be invited to the Biennale in Reykjavík on the 19th-20th of May, 2022 to attend the conference and the VPL prize ceremony. 

The deadline for application is March 21st , 2022.  Please submit your application through this link: https://vplbiennale.org/apply-for-the-vpl-prize/
