We hold a number of unique events:

Prize Giving

The prize-giving is held biennially and brings together an eclectic collection of people from a range of different backgrounds united by their interest in the values behind the prize.


The Contrarian Prize Lecture provides a platform to the winner of the prize to speak about a topic of their choice that highlights the principles of independence, courage and sacrifice.

Contrarian Prize In The Mix

Contrarian Prize In The Mix is an opportunity to take the message of standing up for your principles and speaking out to the widest possible audience and also having a little fun.

Whilst other international prizes organise white tie concerts in Oslo, the Contrarian Prize In the Mix Dance party takes place In Shoreditch.
