The 2015 TED Prize for global change agents.(USD 1Million prize for an inspiring project)

Nomination Deadline: March 31, 2014.

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

The Prize begins with a big wish—a wish to inspire thinkers and doers across the globe. From Bono’s the ONE Campaign (’05 recipient) to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution (’10 recipient) and JR’s Inside Out Project (’11 recipient), the TED Prize has helped to combat poverty, take on religious intolerance, improve global health, tackle child obesity, advance education, and inspire art around the world.

Nominate an individual — or yourself — to envision and execute a high-impact project that can spur global change. The TED Prize winner will have an ambitious wish — and the vision, pragmatism and leadership to turn it into reality.

  • Every self-nomination will include a proposal for a world-changing and achievable wish.
  • When nominating an individual, the nominator is welcome to approach the nominee about drafting a potential wish.

If a nominee is strong, and no wish is included, the TED Prize team will reach out to them directly during the short-listing process.
