- Other outstanding contributions to ASEAN Community Building
- There will be one prize winner each year selected by the Judging Committee (JC) based on the criteria as outlined in paragraph 1.
- For selection criteria, the nominee must be a citizen of or organisation in any ASEAN Member States (AMS). The nominee must show his/her or the organisation’s verifiable achievements in promoting intra-ASEAN collaboration and the impacts that have been made on ASEAN. The nominee should also share his/her/organisation’s future plans in continuing the work after winning the Prize.
- Nominations from AMSs, which could be broadcast openly, would be collated by the National Focal Point, and shortlisted nominations would be submitted to the JC.
The Prize, ideally, is proposed to be bestowed by ASEAN Leaders. However, considering the extensive approval process involved and required, the alternate option is to present the Prize during the ASEAN Ministerial Meeting (AMM).
The ASEAN Chair of that particular year, has the discretion to decide whether the ASEAN Prize should be presented at the ASEAN Leaders Summit or the AMM.
Nominated candidates will be disqualified if found to have committed or acted contrary to the aims, objectives and fundamental principles and values of ASEAN as well as the domestic laws of the relevant AMS(s).
