Deadline: nominations are considered year-round on a rolling basis. They are currently accepting nominations for the 2017 TED Prize – submit by August 31, 2016

Eligibility: TED Prize nominees can be activists, scientists, artists, educators, entrepreneurs, technologists…. The ideal nominee is a visionary who thinks big, and a strong leader with the skills to make things happen. You can nominate yourself. You can nominate a colleague, a mentor or a friend.
