TED Prize

The TED Prize is awarded to an individual with a creative, bold vision to spark global change. By leveraging the TED community’s resources and investing $1 million into a powerful idea, each year the TED Prize supports one wish to inspire the world.

Each year, we award the TED Prize to a leader with a bold, innovative vision for sparking global change. The TED Prize winner receives $1,000,000 — and support from the TED community’s wide range of resources and expertise — to make their dream become a reality.

A TED Prize winner is a rare and powerful combination: someone who knows how to capture imaginations as well as how to make a measurable impact. A TED Prize winner is a visionary and a pragmatist, a dreamer and a doer. Here, tips on what makes a TED Prize winner and how you can make the most of the nomination form.

Nomination for the TED Prize happens two ways: Nominate yourself and make a wish. Or nominate someone else, and we'll contact them to ask them for their wish. The TED Prize committee reviews all nominations and narrows the applicant pool down to a longlist whose wishes are carefully researched and reviewed. The most promising wishes are then presented to a jury drawn from leading members of the TED community, who select the year's winning wish. The TED Prize winner speaks at the annual TED Conference, revealing their wish and their plan for accomplishing it. 

Top tips for nominations

  • The nomination form is designed to gather information about the nitty gritty execution of the wish and the ways in which we might tell a truly inspiring and engaging story to the world about it.
  • The heart of the TED Prize is the wish. Though it's small in size, it is the most important element of your nomination. It's worth investing your time refining.
  • At its most basic, a wish = who + what + how = a better world. In other words, who are you going to engage on what issue and in what way for what kind of improvement?
  • In order to create momentum, a substantial portion of the wish should be achievable in a one-year period. However, change takes time. The TED Prize winner will be given up to three years to fully realize their project.
  • Please note that we weigh single nominations as heavily as multiple nominations and we strongly discourage multiple nominations. If more than five individuals nominate you in identical language, you will be disqualified, so "stacking the deck" won't work.
