WORLD MAYOR ELECTION
World Mayor 2023:
Citizens will decide
Members of the public rather than a panel of ‘experts’ decide which mayors and cities will be honoured by the 2023 World Mayor Project. Since the inception of World Mayor in 2004, millions of people from across the world have taken part in the biennial Project. Citizens suggested, nominated and voted for mayors who, in their opinion, deserved to be honoured. Being nominated for the World Mayor Prize has provided mayors with international recognition, while the interest in the nominations by domestic and international media has benefited their cities.
In 2023, the City Mayors Foundation will award the World Mayor Friendship Prize and Awards to mayors and cities that have made outstanding contributions to friendship, partnerhip and cooperation between municipalities at home and across borders.
At a time of strife, conflict and war between nations, cities, when joining forces, can become peacemakers. The 2023 World Mayor Project will feature and honour mayors who promote peace and prosperity through friendship between cities.
By awarding the Friendship Prize, the 2023 World Mayor Project also aims to encourage acts of generosity and kindness towards less fortunate towns and cities, including towards those affected by conflicts and natural disasters. The 2023 Project will also honour mayors from wealthy cities who have shared resources and expertise with poorer and left-behind communities in their own countries or abroad.
Nominating your candidate
Nominations for the 2023 World Mayor Prize and Awards should be accompanied by persuasive testimonials, describing the nominated mayors' and their cities' dedication to friendship, partnership and cooperation between towns and cities. We invite nominations of mayors from municipalities of all sizes and from all parts of the world. The strength of argument is more important than the number of nominations to allow mayors from smaller towns and even villages to compete on equal terms with those from large metropolises.
Nominations for 2023 World Mayor Prize can be submitted until 15 May 2023. A final longlist will be published by early June. The World Mayor shortlist for 2023 will be released in early July 2023.
Please nominate your candidate for
the World Mayor Prize and Awards
