About City Mayors


World Mayor 2014
Candidates sought

The City Mayors Foundation invites the international public to nominate candidates for the 2014 World Mayor Prize. The Prize is awarded every two years to a mayor who has made outstanding contributions to his / her community and has developed a vision for urban living and working that is relevant to towns and cities across the world. Previous winners and runners-up include the mayors of Bilbao, Perth, Mexico City, Oklahoma City, Cape Town, Zurich, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Athens, Mississauga and Tirana.

While it is up to the constituents of a mayor to judge his / her achievements, the City Mayors Foundation is seeking candidates who have served for a number of years. Anyone wishing to nominate a mayor is also asked to consider whether his / her candidate is likely to agree to the City Mayors Code of Ethics. Mayors wishing to be considered for the World Mayor Prize will be asked to sign up to the Code.

Nominations must be accompanied by a thoughtful supporting statement.

When contemplating the shortlist for the 2014 World Mayor Prize, the City Mayors Foundation will take into account the number of nominations a candidate has received from separate individuals and organisations and, more importantly, the persuasiveness of supporting statements.

Timetable

Nominations will be accepted until the middle of May 2014. An initial longlist of candidates has gone online. A shortlist of 25 nominees will be announced in early June 2014. A second round of voting will take place between June and October. The winner of the 2014 World Mayor Prize and other results of the World Mayor Project will be declared in January 2015.

Please contact us if you have any further questions. Please insert 'World Mayor 2014' in the subject line of any email.
