Nominations are now open for the 2025 Zayed Award for Human Fraternity, an independent global prize recognising efforts to promote human fraternity and solidarity.

Eligible nominators—including government members, heads of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), academics, spiritual leaders, and other influential figures—are invited to submit their nominations through from Monday (June 3) until October 1.

The Zayed Award for Human Fraternity is an independent global award, granted by the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity and includes a cash prize of $1 million. It is awarded annually on February 4, the International Day for Human Fraternity.

The award was established in 2019 following the historic meeting in Abu Dhabi between Pope Francis and Grand Imam Ahmed Al Tayeb of Al Azhar, during which the two leaders co-signed the Document on Human Fraternity.

The honoree whose humanitarian efforts and impact follow in the footsteps of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan are honoured at a ceremony in Abu Dhabi at the Founder’s Memorial.

An independent judging committee of experts in peace building and coexistence will review the nominations and select the honoree. ICA/Expat Media
