The Contrarian Prize seeks to recognise individuals in British public life who demonstrate independence, courage and sacrifice.
Now in its third 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?
The human rights lawyer, Clive Stafford Smith, won it in 2014 and Michael Woodford, the former CEO of Olympus turned whistleblower, won it in 2013. The winner of the 2015 prize will be announced on 18 June.
We invite you to nominate an individual you believe is worthy of this accolade.
The Contrarian Prize (above) entitled “The Three Politicians”
was donated by the renowned pop art sculptor Mauro Perucchetti.
