World Veterinary Day was instigated by the World Veterinary Association (WVA) in 2000 to be celebrated annually on the last Saturday of April. In 2008, the WVA and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) agreed on the creation of the World Veterinary Day Award aimed at rewarding the most successful celebration of the veterinary profession by national veterinary associations, alone, or in cooperation with any other selected veterinary body.
The 2011 Award will be delivered at the 30th World Veterinary Congress to be held in Cape Town, South Africa on 10 to 14 October 2011.
The prize of US$1,000 will be donated to the winner.
