2015 Prize underway

Nominations are now open for the 2015 Lush Prize

The Prize, a project run by Ethical Consumer for Lush Cosmetics, is a major initiative aiming to bring forward the day when safety testing takes place without the use of animals.

It focuses pressure on rewarding those working in the field of toxicity testing for consumer products and ingredients.

This will be the fourth year of the Lush Prize and by the end of the year they will have distributed a million pounds to science and campaign initiatives to end product safety testing on animals.

So far Lush Prize has already rewarded 37 scientists and organisations in 19 countries with £750,000 of funding for their outstanding contributions to replacing animal testing. They are now inviting nominations from anywhere in the world, for projects which have taken place anywhere in the world.

They are a global prize fund and have supported projects all over the world - last year's winners covered Europe, South America, Asia and Africa.

Nominations close on July 24th and judging will take place in September.

On November 13th 2015, £250,000 will be awarded to people and projects deemed to be working most most effectively in the five prize areas.

  • Science
  • Young Researchers
  • Training
  • Public Awareness
  • Lobbying


There is also a Black Box prize - the only Prize category where someone could win the whole £250,000! This will be awarded to an organisation or individual that has made a major break though in the sector.

Full details of each category are on the Lush Prize website.

Nominations close on 24 July 2015.
