TED Prize is Dreaming Bigger

TED Prize has big news! They have evolved so much since the prize launched in 2005 and now three key shifts have allowed them to turn the page to a whole new chapter. Historically, the TED Prize was awarded to individuals who then made a wish. Starting in 2013, it will be awarded to individuals with a big wish already in mind. Also, individuals may self-nominate or nominate someone else, as long as every nomination includes a world-changing, achievable wish. And now for the biggest change (drum roll, please…), the typical cash award of $100,000 has been raised to $1 million in order to provide powerful seed funding for the wish!

TED Prize is calling and counting on you to nominate the visionaries in your networks! You may start nominating here.

The deadline for 2013 nominations is August 31, 2012. The winner will be selected this fall by a jury drawn from leading members of the TED community. The winner will then reveal his or her wish at TED2013 in Long Beach, Calif., on February 27, 2013.
