Announcement of the Nobel Peace Prize 2021
The Nobel Peace Prize 2021 will be announced by the Norwegian Nobel Committee in Oslo on Friday 8 October, 11:00 CEST.
Nobel Peace Center
One Friday morning each October, the eyes of the world are turned to Oslo and the Norwegian Nobel Institute. It is the day of the announcement of the Nobel Peace Prize.
When the doors of the Nobel Institute’s Grand Hall are pushed open and the chair of the Nobel Committee enters the room, the attending press – and countless followers on TV and social media - hold their breath. They are about to learn who will be receiving the world’s most prestigious award.
There is no strict rule governing when the Norwegian Nobel Committee shall announce the name of the year's Peace Prize Laureate. However, the established custom is to make the announcement at 11 a.m. on Friday of the first full week of October. According to the Nobel Foundation statutes the recipient of the Peace Prize must be announced no later than 15 November.
There are 329 candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize this years. That is the the third highest number of nominees ever.
