2024 Prize

Nominations for the Lush Prize 2024 are now open, and will close on Friday 1st December (midnight UK time).

We accept entries from anywhere in the world, in five prize categories:

Lobbying: For exceptional individuals, groups or organisations pushing for change, focusing on policy interventions promoting the use of non-animal research methods.

Public Awareness: For individuals, teams or institutions raising awareness of animal testing.

Science: For individuals, research teams or institutions for work most likely to lead to practical non-animal tests which could be accepted by regulators.

Training: For individuals, teams or organisations establishing training programmes in using non-animal methods.

Young Researcher: For young scientists (under 35 years of age) focused on an animal-test free future.

And for three non-financial Recognition Awards

Health Charity Project: We’re looking for animal-free work, or collaborations, that have created important new insights or techniques in the last eighteen months.

Major Science Collaboration: For international collaborations looking to develop non-animal techniques or approaches more widely and in the longer term.

Political Achievement: For elected political officials at any level and in any country who have made a major contribution towards the ending or replacement of animal research and testing.

In addition, our panel of judges will award the Andrew Tyler Award for outstanding contribution towards ending animal testing. The Black Box Prize is available at our judges’ discretion, whereby the entire prize fund may be awarded for a key breakthrough in human toxicity pathways research.
