The Lush Prize

The Lush Prize offers a global prize fund to support initiatives to end or replace animal testing. It is the largest prize fund in the non-animal testing sector, with a prize fund of £250,000.

For the 2020 Prize there were nine winning projects, organisations and scientists from seven countries. There were also two commended projects and a winner of the Andrew Tyler Award – see all of the Winners here.

We met all of the winners in an online awards ceremony streamed live around the world, which also featured dance, animation and poetry.

The 2020 Lush Prize Conference was held online on the theme of ‘Can Big Data Replace Animal Testing?’. You can watch all the sessions here.
