About City Mayors

More than 100,000 took part in
the 2006 World Mayor Project

Voting for World Mayor 2006 is now closed. During the second stage of the World Mayor contest, from early June until 18 October 2006, more than 100,000 citizens from around the world cast their votes for and commented on mayors they believed should win this year’s World Mayor Award.

During the first stage of the contest, the open round, some 677 mayors from Asia, Africa, Europe and The Americas were nominated for the 2006 World Mayor Award. Based on the nominations, the City Mayors editorial board, the organisers of World Mayor, drew up a short list of 50 mayors to compete for this year’s Award. The results will be announced on 5 December.

World Mayor 2005: Dora Bakoyannis, Mayor of Athens

World Mayor 2006

The World Mayor project is now in its third year. As in 2004 and 2005, this year’s World Mayor will again be seeking out mayors who have the vision, passion and skills to make their cities amazing places to live in, work in and visit. The World Mayor project aims to show what outstanding mayors can achieve and raise their profiles. It honours those who have served their communities well and who have made contributions to the well-being of cities nationally and internationally. The most outstanding mayor of 2006 will be presented with the World Mayor award.

In 2004, Edi Rama, Mayor of Tirana, won the Award. The 2005 winner was Dora Bakoyannis, Mayor of Athens and now Greek Foreign Minister.

Between January and May each year, citizens from across the world are invited to nominate mayors for the World Mayor Award. They are also asked to provide reasons for their choice. After the close of the nomination stage, City Mayors, the organisers of the contest, prepare a shortlist of mayors who go forward to the second round of the World Mayor contest. In 2006, the list of finalists includes 50 mayors from North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australasia as well as Africa.
