On June 13, the Rolex company will be announcing its’ winners for the 2012 Rolex Awards for Enterprise. The five victorious people will each receive a Rolex watch, 100,000 Swiss francs to help them get their projects underway, as well as opportunities to talk with former winners of the prize and the jury members who decided the winner.
The awards ceremony will be held at the British Academy in London. Over thirty-five hundred applicants applied for the awards this year. This competition is only conducted in two year intervals and this year had the largest number of applicants. Rolex is the company known for producing luxury watches, though you can now purchase used Rolex watches through other dealers. The Rolex Enterprise Award is bestowed upon those who seek to help the world in various ways, whether they are trying to improve humanity or countries or the planet itself.
Since this year’s event is coming to a close, which means that the end of June this year will be the start of acceptance for applications towards the 2014 Awards. So next time you go to purchase that new or pre-owned Rolex watch, remember that you are supporting a company that promotes good causes and well-being for the world.
