Nomination procedures

The number of candidates submitted by a Member for a given Prize should not exceed three.

A candidature submitted for a given Prize shall normally be retained on the list of candidates for subsequent Prizes during that financial period.

A candidature received after the opening of a session of the Executive Council shall not be considered at that session, but shall be taken into consideration for all subsequent Prizes during that financial period.

The names of candidates presented by Members (Minister of Foreign Affairs or the Permanent Representative of the Member country with WMO) will be referred to the IMO Prize Selection Committee, if they do not fall into any of the following categories:

  • Members of the Executive Council who, as electors, are not eligible for the award during their term of office as members of the Executive Council;
  • Candidates who are no longer alive on the date of their nomination. The award may nevertheless be made posthumously to a candidate who dies between the date of his nomination and the award of the Prize.
