The Lobbying Prize is open to individuals, groups or organisations pushing for change, focusing on policy interventions promoting the use of alternatives to animal testing.

It is for those working on replacing, rather than reducing or refining animal experiments.

Entries for the 2024 Lush Prize close on Friday 1st December.

Please read the eligibility guidelines and complete the Entry Form below.

The overriding aim of the Lush Prize is to reward individuals, groups or organisations who are working hard and doing most to find and push forward replacements to non-human animal testing in toxicology. Naturally therefore, the aim is that this money will be channelled towards those who aren’t involved in the use of animals.

The Lobbying Prize is a ‘1R rather than 3R’ prize. In other words we are seeking nominations from those working on replacing, rather than reducing or refining animal experiments.  An explanation of 3R’s can be found here on the NC3Rs website.

The prize aims particularly to reward those working in areas where funding is tight and these areas may be given priority.

For the 2024 Prize, nominated projects must have been running in 2022 or 2023.

No organisation will receive an award for two prize cycles in a row. This normally includes affiliate groups such as departments of the same organisation in different countries. If you are unclear whether this applies to your organisation please contact us.
