The function of the nomination is to make the Committee aware of the candidate’s work. The Holberg Prize Laureate will be announced in March and the award ceremony takes place in Bergen, Norway, in early June.

Scholars holding positions at universities and other research institutions, including academies, are entitled to nominate candidates to the Holberg Prize. The nomination letter should be written in English and provide a statement of maximum 1 page justifying why the candidate should recieve the Holberg Prize. The nomination should also include the candidate’s CV and suggest at least three referees who know the scholar´s work.

The Holberg Committee particularly encourages nomination of established scholars below the age of seventy. Joint nominations do not strengthen a candidacy. Nominations are strictly confidential and should not be disclosed to the nominee or to others at any time. The deadline for nominations to the 2018 Holberg Prize is 15 June, 2017.
