Wish Big: TED Prize Grows to $1 Million, Now Open 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, and street artist JR, 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 $100,000 $1 million to help achieve a big wish? Nominate him, her, or even yourself here, where TED has opened nominations for the 2013 prize winner. You have through August 31 to tell TED Prize director Lara Stein and her team about your nominee’s megawish. “A successful nomination will offer a compelling wish, demonstrate how this wish can catalyze a paradigm-shifting action, and show evidence of the nominee’s ability to bring this action to fruition,” say Stein and TED Prize deputy director Anna Verghese. “It will also include a plan for how the larger TED and TEDx communities can participate in the realization of the wish.” The winner, to be selected in the fall by a jury drawn from members of the TED community, will reveal his or her wish during TED2013 in Long Beach, California.
