2020 Prize


Prize fund and Categories

Now in its eighth prize cycle, The 2020 Lush Prize offers a global prize fund of £250,000 across five award categories.

Each category normally awards one (or possibly two) projects, with the Young Researcher Award funding up to five scientists.



We have 58 shortlisted organisations and individuals from 21 countries – see the full shortlist.

Winners will be publicly announced in May, at the Lush Prize Conference and Awards Ceremony.



For the 2020 panel of judges, we were delighted to have back as judges seven distinguished scientists and campaigners who have served in previous years, and welcome our Young Research judge, Lush Staff member judge and Lush Customer Judge.

Judging takes place in January.
