Stiansens Stiftelse gladly accepts suggestions and nominations for who should be awarded each year. Suggestions and nominations are accepted until the deadline of September 15th each year.
The condition for Award nominations is that the nominated must have strived to promote animal rights during the last year – such as traditional animal welfare, animal training and research, and political advocacy.
