- The Sydney Peace Prize is awarded to an organization or an individual whose life and work has demonstrated significant contributions to:
- The achievement of peace with justice locally, nationally or internationally
- The promotion and attainment of human rights
- The philosophy, language and practice of nonviolence
- The Foundation has not sought candidates with impeccable records, as efforts for peace and human rights are often controversial. Neither has the Foundation regarded a Peace Prize recipient as someone who must be associated with a specific event, such as a ceasefire in hostilities or the signing of a peace treaty. Recipients may also have received little public recognition for such work.
