2020 Prize

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

Entries for the 2020 Prize are now open and will close on 6th December 2019.

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



For the 2020 panel of judges, we were delighted to welcome back seven distinguished scientists and campaigners who have served in previous years.

Judging will take place in January.
