Nominations Open for Right Livelihood Awards!

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 1 March 2018

Nominations are open for the Right Livelihood Award to honour and support courageous people and organisations offering visionary and exemplary solutions to the root causes of global problems.

The Right Livelihood Award recognizes that, in striving to meet the human challenges of today’s world, the most inspiring and remarkable work often defies any standard classification.

The Right Livelihood Award is not an award for the world’s political, scientific or economic elite, but an award for the people and their work and struggles for a better future. The Laureates come from all walks of life: they are farmers, teachers, doctors, or simply, concerned citizens. The Right Livelihood Award accepts proposals from everyone through an open nomination process.

The Right Livelihood Award was established in 1980 to “honour and support courageous people and organisations offering visionary and exemplary solutions to the root causes of global problems”. It has become widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’ and there are now 166 Laureates from 68 countries.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Anyone – except Right Livelihood Award jury and staff members – can propose anyone (individuals or organisations), except themselves, close relatives or their own organisations to be considered for a Right Livelihood Award. The Right Livelihood Award Foundation reserves the right to refuse clearly unsuitable proposals.
  • Normally, the Foundation makes three cash awards and one Honorary Award each year. The cash awards are intended for work in progress or the extension of existing activities; they are never given for personal use.
  • At the sole discretion of the jury, an unsuccessful candidate may be held over for consideration in the following year. Otherwise an unsuccessful candidate can be proposed again after three years, if there is substantial new work to report.
  • The Foundation has a strict rule that proposals and candidates for the Right Livelihood Award cannot be publicized. Infringement of this rule will make a candidate liable to disqualification.

How to Apply

Interested applicants can submit their proposals both electronically and as a paper copy via regular mail through the address given on the website.

Note: Applicants cannot directly apply for the Right Livelihood Award. They need to be nominated according to programme guidelines.
