- Media (public media, journalists, professional associations)
- Business sector (enterprises, business people)

The Coalition Against Discrimination established the annual "Awards for Fight Against Discrimination" as a recognition to individuals, organizations, institutions, companies and media which throughout one year made the biggest effort to fight discrimination against minority and marginalized groups, or contributed to promotion of equality of all citizens in Serbia. The awards laureates are decided by the Coalition Against Discrimination, based on the proposals submitted by individuals and organizations by the end of 2010.

The Awards Ceremony will be attended by the representatives of the Coalition Against Discrimination's members, as well as Mr Björn Mossberg, Country Manager DCD at the Embassy of Sweden in Belgrade, who will hand over the awards.
