Nominations Open for 2018 Public Peace Prize!

Deadline: 1 January 2018

Nominations are open for 2018 Public Peace Prize with an aim to foster greater recognition for peacemakers and peace initiatives around the world by the general public: on local, national and international levels.

The Public Peace Prize is the only peace award in the world for which the candidates are proposed, nominated and supported simply by citizens of the world. This mark of recognition allows everyone to offer their appreciation for initiatives and for people, known or unknown, who are working for reconciliation, non-violence and mutual aid.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Anyone can propose a person or a peace initiative.
  • Any person, group or initiative that contributes to bringing a little more tolerance, understanding, mutual aid, solidarity, inclusion, reconciliation, non-violence or peace to the world is eligible.
  • Describe the reasons why applicants think it’s important that this person, group or initiative be publicly recognized for their contribution to peace, by describing them through a half-page text sent along with several photos.
  • Ask ten other people to write letters of support for the candidate (minimum 10 lines of text each).
  • The candidates or initiatives who did not win the previous year are automatically re-nominated and eligible for voting during the following year.

  • Each visit to the finalist’s profile page each “Like” on Facebook or Twitter for the Public Peace Prize = 1 support/vote
