Wish Big: 2014 TED Prize Opens for Nominations


Chef and food revolutionary Jamie Oliver accepts the 2010 TED Prize.

With an elite list of past recipients that includes architect Cameron Sinclair, photographers Edward Burtynsky and James Nachtwey, street artist JR, and most recently, educational researcher Sugata Mitra, the TED Prize has proved to be a powerful global platform for designers, artists, and big ideas. So who do you think should be the next creative and/or brilliant person to be granted $1 million to help achieve a big wish? Nominate him, her, or even yourself here, where TED has opened nominations for the 2014 prize winner.

You have through June 1 to tell the TED Prize team about your nominee’s megawish. “In the age of the Internet, we can easily find out what the rest of the world already knows about you,” they advise. “Your nomination should give us insights into what gets you out of bed in the morning, who you work with and are most inspired by, what you dream for the world in ways that are un-Google-able.” The winner, to be selected over the summer by a jury drawn from members of the TED community, will reveal his or her wish during TED2014 in Vancouver.
