ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE PRIZE

The announcement of the laureate´s name is not made on a fixed date, but is often made on a Friday in mid-October. The announcement takes place in the Nobel Institute building and has become a major news event. The Peace Prize is awarded annually on 10 December, the day on which Alfred Nobel died in 1896.

The ways and means to achieve peace are as diverse as the individuals and organizations rewarded with the Nobel Peace Prize. Henry Dunant, founder of the Red Cross, shared the first prize in 1901 with Frèdèric Passy, leading international pacifist of the time. Aside from humanitarian work and peace movements, the Prize has been awarded to a wide field of work including advocacy of human rights, mediation of international conflicts and arms control and disarmament.

THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE CONCERT

Each year on December 11th the Nobel Peace Prize Concert gathers a selection of talented artists and hosts from around the world to pay tribute to the year’s laureate. The resulting Concert is a virtual melting pot of melodies ranging in genre from classical to rap.

It was a milestone evening in Norway on December 11th, as the Nobel Peace Prize Concert marked its 20th Anniversary with memorable performances for a sold-out Oslo Spektrum and a television audience around the world. Global stars gathered to honor this year´s Laureate, The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and pay special tribute to the former Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Nelson Mandela and his indelible legacy.
