Applications for nominations to the 8th Award (2018) officially closed on 31 December 2017.

Nominations were received from 50 countries, with many countries represented by multiple nominations.

Once again, more nominations were submitted than at any time in the Prize's history.

All of these nominations are now undergoing the first step of a rigorous three-tiered international referee process. 

This process will culminate in the winners being announced by the Prize Council no later than September 2018.

The Awards ceremony for the 8th Award will be held in the Autumn of 2018.

Nominations will be re-opening soon for the 9th Award (2020).

Nominations for the 9th Award will be made online through the PSIPW website and remain open until 31 December 2019.
