Leaders deserve to be recognized and rewarded. We believe that a new kind of leadership is badly needed for our societies to prosper: leadership that is innovative, courageous, dynamic, rooted in universal values and global in implication. In that spirit we have established the Tällberg-SNF-Eliasson Global Leadership Prize. Awards of $50,000 and $25,000

4 prizes in total from 2 categories:

  • Emerging and established leaders
  • Leaders from any discipline and any part of the world are eligible
  • Winners become part of a network of global leaders
  • Worldwide exposure


  • Anyone, anywhere—except for prize jurors—can nominate a leader from any country and from any discipline e.g. politicians, statesmen, scientists, educators, social entrepreneurs, CEOs, environmentalists, artists, religious and military figures, and others.
  • The working language for the Prize process is English.

Nominations are made in the form below in five simple steps:

  • Provide us with your and the nominee’s contact details;
  • Tell us why the candidate deserves to be considered for the prize;
