The Right Livelihood Award Foundation receives nominations from all around the world for its Award. Through this open process, the Foundation acquires a sense of what people around the world perceive as the most urgent problems – and who is working to solve them.

The Right Livelihood Award was established in 1980 to “honour and support courageous people solving global problems”.

It has become widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’ and there are now 182 Laureates from 72 countries.

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.

Utilize This Offer

Any living person or organisation can be nominated for a Right Livelihood Award.

There are no restrictions on who may submit a nomination, individuals or organisations can submit a nomination.

The Foundation does not accept self-nominations, therefore nominations for oneself, close relatives or their own organisations will not be considered for a Right Livelihood Award.

Nominations and nominees for the Right Livelihood Award cannot be publicised. Infringement of this rule will make a nominee liable to disqualification.

The Foundation ensures that all information provided by nominators and nominees will be stored securely by the Foundation, and used only for the purposes of the nomination.

The deadline for submission of nominations to be valid for the current year is March 3, 2021.
