The work should provide an original solution which is useful to society and contribute to development and social upliftment, while being practical, environmentally friendly , and cost-effective.

Criteria

  • All nominations are made online through an electronic application form that is available on the PSIPW website. All required documentation and submitted works will be uploaded by way of the same form. No mail-in applications will be accepted.
  • In the event that a team of individuals are being nominated, all team members must be named at the time of application and one member must be specified as their representative. Groups of people working on the same project may not be nominated separately. They must be nominated as a group with a single nomination form.
  • The nominee must be an individual or group of individuals. A university, institution, or government agency is not eligible to be a nominee.
  • Nominations for the Specialized Prizes are by direct self-nomination. Nominations for the Creativity Prize must be made by a university, institution, or government agency on behalf of the nominated team of researchers. Individuals may not nominate themselves or others for the Creativity Prize.
  • The work or works being considered for the nomination must have been completed no more than five (5) years prior to the nomination deadline for the current Prize.
  • Published research papers, published books, published software and registered patents may be submitted for consideration. Unpublished works and unregistered patents are ineligible for the Prize.
  • No more than five (5) distinct works may be submitted. Multiple works should not be collected together and submitted as a single work.
  • Works will be reviewed and judged in English.

If a partial English translation is provided for a work submitted in another language, then only that portion of the work which is translated will be considered for assessment.
  • A nominee can only be nominated for one of the five Prizes during the same award.
  • The work being nominated must not have previously been a recipient of any other international prize. (However, it may have been the recipient of local or regional prizes.)
