The Gratias Agit has been awarded by the Minister of Foreign Affairs for the promotion of the good name of the Czech Republic abroad ever since 1997 in appreciation of prominent personalities and organizations developing activities in nongovernmental fields. Along with the increasing role of civic society, this award, too, is becoming an ever more prestigious prize for the voluntary activities of people committed to working for the benefit of the whole society, for the promotion of friendship among nations and for the promotion of the good name of the Czech Republic in the world. At present, it is the only statutory prize awarded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Proposals for candidates for the prize, either individuals or organizations, may be submitted every year by 31 December to the Public Diplomacy Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Loretánské nám. 5, 118 00 Praha 1.
