The Sydney Peace Foundation is currently seeking nominations for its Sydney Peace Prize 2022, Australia’s only international prize for peace to recognise leading global peacemakers, ensure their voices are heard, and support their vital work for a fairer world.

For over 20 years, the Sydney Peace Prize has brought inspiring and exemplary stories of courage and dedication to global justice to the Australian and Sydney stage.

The Prize creates a platform for recipients to spread their messages far and wide, recognises the work of the world’s most effective peacemakers, and honours the remarkable people at the heart of these stories.

Each recipient shows us how we can live together in peace, with justice, equality and compassion for those around us, sharing our planet with respect for our environment on which all life depends.

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.

Utilize This Offer

The Sydney Peace Prize is awarded to an organization or an individual whose life and work has demonstrated significant contributions to:
1. The achievement of peace with justice locally, nationally or internationally;
2. The promotion and attainment of human rights;
3. 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.

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.

Nomination deadline: 30 June 2021.

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.
