Ockenden Prizes

The $US100,000 Prize, which launched in 2013, is open to applications from any organisation with projects, programmes or activities focused on self-reliance for refugees and displaced people – anywhere in the world.

Two other finalists will each receive $US25,000. 

Judging criteria
The judges will, in particular, look for:
  • initiatives that promote self-reliance among refugees and/or displaced people.
  • approaches that have proved to be highly effective in improving the lives of refugees and/or displaced people.
  • Work which has been carried out in especially difficult circumstances.
  • Organisations with strong governance and financial management. 
Payment of the prize
  • The prize monies will be paid to the applicant to use directly or to transfer to their partner or affiliate if they nominated one.
  • Two runners-up, from the short-listed finalists, win $US25,000 each.
  • The jury’s decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.

The project, programme or activity (referred to as the ‘project’) is the focus of the application

  • The project submitted must benefit refugees or displaced people.
  • The project submitted must have been initiated no earlier than May 1, 2012 (i.e. no more than 36 months before the opening date for the current year’s applications).
  • Helping refugees and/or displaced people must be the prime focus of the project rather than an ancillary benefit and there must be a strong emphasis on promoting self-reliance.
  • The applicant must be able to show that there have been measurable achievements and outcomes leading to real change in the lives of those helped.
  • Where possible evidence of independent external evaluation should be provided. Shortlisted applicants will be required to provide further evidence of their, and any nominee’s, financial and governance status to advance to the final round of judging, during which there will be an examination of both, as well as the project outcomes.
