Contrarian Prize Debate “Contrarianism in an age of Conformity” Watch it here...

The Contrarian Prize seeks to recognise individuals in British public life who demonstrate independence, courage and sacrifice.

Now in its fifth year, it aims to shine a light on those who have made a meaningful contribution to the public debate through the ideas that they have introduced or the stand they have taken. 

The conformists are rewarded with senior positions in government, business, quangos and the media. But there is nothing to acknowledge those that stand up for what they believe in and suffer as a result.  We recognise our military greats but what about those heroes of conscience whose impact may, in time, be profound?

Nominations for the 2017 prize are now closed. The shortlist will be released in April and the winner be announced on 16 May.


The Contrarian Prize 2015 (above) was presented by the renowned broadcaster, Jonathan Dimbleby, at the elegant Maison Assouline in Piccadilly.
