Nominations are now open for the second MIT Media Lab Disobedience Award, which carries a $250,000 cash prize, no strings attached.
This award will go to a person or group engaged in what we believe is an extraordinary example of disobedience for the benefit of society: work that impacts society in positive ways, and is consistent with a set of key principles, including nonviolence, creativity, courage, and responsibility for one’s actions. We invite nominations for work across disciplines (scientific research, civil rights, freedom of speech, human rights, and the freedom to innovate, for example).
You must fill out the online nomination form between May 16, 2018 and August 15, 2018. All required fields must be completed. You will receive an email confirmation acknowledging your nomination. A member of the selection committee may contact you for more information, if your nomination is chosen as a finalist. We will announce the winner on November 30, 2018.
