Nominations Open for Sydney Peace Prize 2020!

Deadline: 30 June 2019

The Sydney Peace Foundation is seeking nominations for its Sydney Peace Prize 2020, Australia’s only international prize for peace to inspire and empower people from all walks of life to make peace with justice a reality.

The prize brings inspiring and exemplary stories of courage and dedication to global justice to the Australian and Sydney stage, educates the community on the work of the world’s most effective peacemakers, and honours the remarkable people at the heart of these stories.

The Sydney Peace Prize is awarded to an individual or organisation. A jury of carefully selected and highly respected members who represent community, academic, corporate, and media sector interests – assesses the merits of the nominees’ efforts to promote peace with justice.

Prize Information

The recipient is awarded a $50,000 prize to further their cause of peace with justice and a hand-made glass trophy crafted by Australian artist Brian Hirst. They spend a week in Sydney to promote understanding of their work by engaging with the media, addressing the public at the City of Sydney Peace Prize Lecture, and meeting with students at Cabramatta High School’s Peace Day.

Eligibility Criteria

Everyone can nominate. Whether applicants are Sydneysider, live somewhere else in Australia, or live abroad – the Sydney Peace Foundation welcomes them to nominate.

Selection Criteria

  • 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.

How to Apply

The Sydney Peace Foundation accepts nominations in writing or email. Nominations should be accompanied by an explanation as to merit of the nomination against the criteria for selection (approximately 200 words), together with as much relevant supporting material as possible.
