Prize Conference

The Lush Prize 2022 Conference took place online over two days in November.

In this tenth year anniversary of Lush Prize, it explored what progress has been made during the past decade to end the use of animals in research and testing.

You can find video recordings of the sessions here.


Categories and Judging

The judges shortlisted 65 shortlisted organisations and individuals from 26 countries – see the full shortlist.

We took nominations in six prize categories:

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.

Public Awareness: For individuals, teams or institutions raising awareness of animal testing. There are two sub-categories, with funding being allocated both for past/ongoing campaigns as well as for future projects.

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

Young Researcher: For young scientists (under 36 years of age) focused on an animal-test free future.

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 (this is a non-financial award).

In addition, our panel of judges awarded the Andrew Tyler Award for outstanding contribution towards ending animal testing.
