As the nomination process requires a significant commitment of time and energy on your part, we encourage you to review these guidelines and forms carefully before proceeding.
The annual cycle of The Charles Bronfman Prize begins in the Fall with a ‘Call for Nominations’ for the Prize to be presented the following year. The ‘Call’ is promoted internationally through print and online media, recruitment letter, and email distribution. The evaluation process is conducted in three stages over the winter and early spring, with a recipient announced in early summer. The Prize is presented in early fall.
Nominees are bought to the attention of the Prize by a nominating team consisting of a Nominator and three References. Nominees cannot self nominate. The Nominator acts as the point of contact between the Prize and the nominee during the nomination and evaluation process.
The ‘Call’ is open from early November to mid-January to allow nominating teams to adequately prepare their nominations. As the nomination process requires a significant commitment of time and energy on your part, we encourage teams to review the guidelines for how to present your nominee and the nomination forms carefully before proceeding. Please refer to the FAQs page with questions and concerns and how to deliver your nomination for delivery instructions.
For the best indicator of the kind of nominees we are seeking, visit the recipients page of the Prize website.
All nominations will be duly acknowledged in writing, by email, to all members of the nominating team, with a copy to the Nominee.
