Nominations for the 2019 John Maddox?Prize?are now open!

The John Maddox Prize recognises the work of individuals who promote sound science and evidence on a matter of public interest, facing difficulty or hostility in doing so.
Sir John Maddox, whose name this prize commemorates, was a passionate and tireless champion and defender of science, engaging with difficult debates and inspiring others to do the same. As a writer and editor, he changed attitudes and perceptions, and strove for better understanding and appreciation of science throughout his long working life. Prize nomations are open for all.

The John Maddox Prize awards evening will be hosted at Wellcome Collection, London in November, and an announcement is published in Nature. The prize is a joint initiative of Sense about Science and the science journal Nature.

  • The nature of the challenge(s) faced by the individual.
  • How well they placed the evidence in the wider debate and engaged others.
  • Their level of influence on the public debate.

The prize will be awarded for specific achievements, and the decision will be final and not open to appeal. Prize Nominations are open now for all.

Nominations are ongoing for the International Children’s Peace Prize 2018. The International Children’s Peace Prize is awarded annually to a child who fights courageously for children’s rights. All winners have shown a remarkable commitment to combating problems millions of children face worldwide.

The? International Children’s Peace Prize is awarded annually to an exceptional child, whose courageous or otherwise remarkable actions have made a difference in improving children’s rights, which helps children worldwide. The motivation behind the prize is to provide a platform for children to express their ideas and personal involvement in children’s rights. KidsRights feels that children should be recognized, awarded and motivated in their fierce efforts to improve their own situation and that of the children in their environment and even the world.

The prize was launched by KidsRights during the 2005 World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates at the Capitol in Rome, chaired by Mikhail Gorbachev. Since then, the prize has been presented every year by a Nobel Peace Laureate.?The International Children’s Peace Prize is an initiative of Marc Dullaert, Chairman and Founder of the KidsRights Foundation.

Nkosi Prize

  • The winner receives the statuette?‘Nkosi’, which shows how a child sets the world in motion. This statuette?designed by Inge Ikink and is named?after our very first winner,?Nkosi Johnson.

  • Furthermore, a?project fund of €100,000?is invested by KidsRights in projects that are closely connected to the winners’ area of work in the country of the winner.

Global Platform

  • The prize recognizes the achievements of the young winner. Yet, the prize also offers the winner a global platform to promote his ideals and further his work. With the newfound attention, these young heroes’ messages reach an international audience of millions. This global attention will generate a higher level of cooperation and structural improvement for the realisation of children’s rights.

Study and Care Fund

  • The winner receives a scholarship from KidsRights to enable him or her to obtain education up until and including the university degree. Secondly, financial care is made available to support the winner and his or her family in livelihood costs, where needed.

Eligibility:

Any person or organisation may nominate a child for review by the?Expert Committee. ?All nominations should comply with the following requirements:

  • Above 12 years and under 18 years of age; (the child should not be older than 17 years by the time of the nomination deadline)

  • Ability to travel abroad and feeling comfortable communicating with other people;
  • The child agrees to being nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize.

Nominations are ongoing for the Right Livelihood Award 2018. Established in 1980, the Right Livelihood Award honour and support courageous people and organisations offering visionary and exemplary solutions to the root causes of global problems. It has become widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’ and there are now 170 Laureates from 69 countries.

Presented annually in Stockholm, the Right Livelihood Award is usually shared by four Recipients.?The prize money shared by all Laureates is SEK 3?million (2017)?but not always all Laureates receive a cash award. Often an Honorary Award is given to a person or group whose work the Jury wishes to recognise but who is not primarily in need of monetary support.?The prize money is for ongoing successful work, never for personal use.

Unlike the Nobel Prizes and most other international prizes, the Right Livelihood Award has no categories. It recognises that, in striving to meet the human challenges of today’s world, the most inspiring and remarkable work often defies any standard classification.

The presentation of the Right Livelihood Award is only the start of a long relationship between the Laureate and the Foundation. The Foundation sees its role as being the megaphone and shield for the Laureates, and provides them with long-term support.

Award:

  • 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.

The Right Livelihood Award is not an award for the world’s political, scientific or economic elite, but an award for the people and their work and struggles for a better future. The Laureates come from all walks of life: they are farmers, teachers, doctors, or simply, concerned citizens. The Right Livelihood Award accepts proposals from everyone through an open nomination process.

Eligibility:

  • Anyone – except Right Livelihood Award Jury and staff members – can propose anyone (individuals or organisations), except themselves, close relatives or their own organisations, to be considered for a Right Livelihood Award.
  • The Right Livelihood Award Foundation reserves the right to refuse clearly unsuitable proposals.
  • The Laureates come from all walks of life: they are farmers, teachers, doctors, or simply, concerned citizens.

They have a strict rule that proposals and candidates for the Right Livelihood Award cannot be publicised. Infringement of this rule will make a candidate liable to disqualification.

Nomination Process:

Proposals, preferably written in English, need to be submitted both electronically and as a paper copy via regular mail to our office in Geneva. Please send only one copy, preferably printed double-sided. If possible,?use encrypted email (more information below).

Postal Address

Right Livelihood Award Foundation
Geneva office
Maison de la Paix
Chemin Eugène-Rigot 2e, Building 5
1202 Geneva

Email: research@rightlivelihood.org

The deadline for submission of proposals to be valid for the current year is March 1.?Any proposals received after this date will normally be held for consideration in the following year.

Entries are now accepted for the Luis Valtue?a International Humanitarian Photography Competition 2017. This is the twenty-first consecutive year in which Doctors of the World–Médicos del Mundo (MdM-Spain) has conducted the Luis Valtue?a International Humanitarian Photography Competition. The contest has become a reference within the world of photography, which seeks to extol humanitarian values and solidarity. It collects real stories embodied in images that become testimony and denunciation of social injustices.

Since 1997, Médicos del Mundo has annually awarded the Luis Valtue?a International Humanitarian Photography Prize; a project that was born two decades ago as a tribute to the memory of Luis Valtue?a, Manuel Madrazo, Flors Sirera and Mercedes Navarro, doctors of the World Doctors killed in Rwanda in 1997 and in Bosnia in 1995 when they were working on humanitarian aid projects.

Prize:

  • The winner will receive a?project grant of 6,000 euros?(amount before tax, which depends on the winner’s nationality and situation) to develop a photography project composed of at least 50 photos and a 30 minute video shoot related to the work of MdM-Spain, whether in Spain or in other countries where the organization is undertaking humanitarian action or international cooperation programs.
  • The winner together with MdM-Spain will define the objectives and the development of the project, taking into account common interests and the operative security conditions related to possible destinations. The amount of the grant should cover all expenses needed to develop the project.
  • Once the project’s terms are settled, MdM-Spain will not demand an account of those expenses. The grant will be given in three parts: 50% after the judges’ decision, 25% when the project starts and the remaining 25% when the project concludes.
  • Along with the winning entries, MdM-Spain will select other photos from all those submitted to form part of a travelling exhibition.

Eligibility:

  • The competition is open to adult amateur and professional photographers of any nationality.

Requirements:

  • Photographs must be related to any of the following themes: humanitarian action, international cooperation, social exclusion, human rights violations, armed conflicts, natural disasters, refugee and immigrant populations or socially excluded groups.
  • Each participant will be allowed to submit a maximum of ten photographs, which can be distinct or part of a series.
  • Only photos taken between January 2016 and October 2017, which have not been previously entered, will be accepted. Photos must be submitted in digital format.
  • Photographs must be sent in *JPEG format with a minimum resolution of 300 ppi/ppp, all high quality (12) compressed images with an Adobe RGB or SRGB color profile. The images must have a minimum size of 40 cms on their smallest side and must not bear any mark identifying the entrant.
  • The digital image’s original structure can only be manipulated through darkroom techniques such as adjusting the brightness, contrast and color, underexposure and overexposure. No other change to the original digital image will be allowed.
