About Nominations

Nomination System

Every other year in July, the Fukuoka Prize Committee seeks nominations from eligible nominators of academic societies and associations, arts and cultural organizations, and the media from Japan and abroad, especially regions from Asia.

Please read the Nomination Guidelines before sending the completed nomination form(s) by mail, e-mail, or fax to the Secretariat of the Fukuoka Prize Committee.

Two-year Nomination Cycle

We invite nominations every other year and the nominations remain active for a period of two years. For example, nominations submitted by invited nominators in the year 2015 will be subject to selection for the Fukuoka Prize 2016 and 2017.

Additional Recommendation

Although nominators are only invited to submit nominations every other year (see Two-year Nomination Cycle), we also accept additional recommendations in the second year of the Two-year Nomination Cycle.
