The first-ever Earthshot Prize awards ceremony will take place on October 17, 2021, at the iconic Alexandra Palace in London, with other famous landmarks across the UK’s capital city also part of the historic event.

Broadcast to a global audience, the awards ceremony will celebrate the global Finalists before awarding the first five Winners of The Earthshot Prize. These top five solutions will have the greatest impact on the biggest environmental challenges facing our planet and the Winners will each receive £1 million to scale their solutions.

Every year from 2021 until 2030, The Earthshot Prize will find and reward solutions to the five ‘Earthshot’ goals, to protect and restore nature, revive our oceans, to clean our air, build a waste-free world and fix our climate. Prize winners will each receive a £1 million prize fund and tailored support to scale their solutions and realise an even greater impact of their ground-breaking work.

Across the decade-long lifespan of The Earthshot Prize, nine more international cities will be transformed into Earthshot venues, showcasing the worldwide impact of the Prize and profiling the incredible people working to repair out planet. By the end of the decade, ten global award ceremonies will award fifty incredible Winners with The Earthshot Prize.

How are finalists selected?

Over the past six months, The Earthshot Prize, in collaboration with its Global Alliance network of over 200 Nominators, has been searching the world – from businesses to governments, grassroots initiatives and more – for solutions to these challenges and identifying a final set of astounding innovations from every corner of the globe.

The Finalists will be announced in September and the official Prize Winners will be selected by The Earthshot Prize Council, an international team of influential individuals with a variety of backgrounds, including Prince William, Sir David Attenborough, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Shakira, Luisa Neubauer and Cate Blanchett. Prize Winners will each receive a £1 million prize fund and tailored support to scale their solutions and realise an even greater impact of their ground-breaking work.
