The Sydney Peace Foundation: Inviting applications for ‘the Sydney Peace Prize’ to recognize the work of the world’s most effective peacemakers, and honor the remarkable people at the heart of these stories.

Funding brief: The Sydney Peace Prize has brought inspiring and exemplary stories of courage and dedication to global justice to the Australian and Sydney stage for over 20 years. The Prize creates a platform for recipients to spread their messages far and wide, recognizes 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.

Since 1998 the Jury has selected recipients from wide and diverse fields.

Some laureates help families overcome poverty and live in dignity, courageously champion the rights of indigenous peoples, or fight racial oppression. Others have made it their mission to reconcile people and nations, take on the powers destroying the environment on which they all depend, or promote non-violence, demanding aggressors put down their weapons and abolish weapons of mass terror.

When deciding on a winner, they consider a three key 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 non-violence
