The prize is split, with a portion going to the individual and a portion going to the organization. Some people have asked if they can allocate their individual prize money to their organization, and the answer is yes.
The application is in the name of an individual, but the individual must be affiliated with an organization. For example, the bio in the application is for the individual, but it’s important that the individual is creating impact through an organization.
One person must be selected as the team lead or the delegate for the team because we’re all about amplifying extraordinary individuals and their work.
The prize winners get access to a 2-year personal, professional and organizational program. This will be tailored to the winners and range from help creating content around their work and building a fanbase, to pro bono legal or marketing support for the organization.
This is our first year, so we’ll have a better idea soon, but we estimate it will be a few hours each month.
