The City Mayors Foundation awards The World Mayor Prize every two years to a mayor who has made outstanding contributions to his or her community and has developed a vision for urban living and working that is relevant to towns and cities across the world. The two runners-up receive World Mayor Commendations for Services to Cities.

The City Mayors Foundation
The philanthropic City Mayors Foundation, an international think tank dedicated to local government, consists of professionals working together to promote strong and prosperous cities as well as good local government. Established in 2003, City Mayors encourages city leaders from across the world to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to long-standing urban problems such as housing, transport, education and employment. City Mayors also debates ways to meet the latest environmental, technological, social and security challenges, which affect the well-being of citizens.

The City Mayors Foundation has no association with any city or organisation and is run on philantropic lines. Sponsorships, advertising, subscriptions, donations or any other kind of revenue are NOT sought and will be rejected, if offered.

Code of Ethics
The City Mayors Foundation and the World Mayor Project were established in 2003 to promote, encourage and facilitate good local government. To strengthen local government further, a Code of Ethics for city leaders, who wish to perform their duties beyond all reproach, has been devised. All mayors wishing be considered for the World Mayor Prize are expected to sign up to the Code of Ethics.

World Mayor 2016
The philanthropic City Mayors Foundation now seeks candidates for the 2016 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. The Prize has been awarded since 2004.

The 2016 Prize will be conferred to a mayor who has accepted the challenges posed by migration but is also convinced of its longterm benefits. He or she will be leading a city where past and/or more recent immigrants have contributed to the city’s society, economy and culture. The City Mayors Foundation will also consider a mayor for the Prize whose community has shown exceptional resilience during the recent arrivals from desaster-torn regions of the world.

Mayors wishing to be considered for the World Mayor Prize will be asked to sign up to the Code of Ethics.

Nominations must be accompanied by a supporting statement. Participants in the 2016 World Mayor Project are also recognising the efforts and sacrifices made by towns and cities as well as many smaller communities, not just in Europe but also in many other parts of the world, in integrating and welcoming migrants and refugees.

2016/17 Timetable
Nominations will be accepted until September 2016. A shortlist of nominees was announced in October. The winner of the 2016 World Mayor Prize and other results of the World Mayor Project will be announced on 14 February 2017.

The winner receives the artistically acclaimed World Mayor trophy, while the two runners-up are presented with the World Mayor Commendation.

The philanthropic City Mayors Foundation, the international think tank on urban affairs, organises the World Mayor Project and awards the World Mayor Prize. The Prize, which has been given since 2004, honours mayors with the vision, passion and skills to make their cities incredible places to live in, work in and visit. The World Mayor Project aims to show what outstanding mayors can achieve and raise their profiles nationally and internationally.

To celebrate migration and to encourage cities to welcome migrants, the 2016 World Mayor Prize and Commendations will be awarded to mayors who have shown the compassion, courage and foresight to open their cities’ doors to immigrants and refugees. Compassion for people who have travelled great distances to find safety. Courage to fight prejudice even in the face of unpopularity. Ability to leverage the value and potential each person offers society.
