Legendary artist, author and world-renowned singer Charles Aznavour calls for applications for the 2017 edition of the Aurora Prize.
Nominations are open to the public from until September 9, 2016.
Anyone can nominate a candidate they believe has overcome great personal challenges to make an exceptional impact on preserving human life and advancing humanitarian causes.
Every year, an Aurora Prize Laureate is honored with a US$100,000 grant, as well as a US$1,000,000 award to be donated to charitable organizations that inspired their work.
The first-ever Aurora Prize Laureate, Marguerite Barankitse of Maison Shalom, was honored in April for saving and caring for 30,000 children, orphans and refugees during Burundi’s civil war.
The second annual Aurora Prize will be presented on April 24, 2017, in Yerevan, Armenia.
