Announcing a new laureate

A name you know and love…or a complete surprise? Mark your calendar: we announce the 2021 ALMA laureate on March 30. Follow our live stream of the announcement from Stockholm.

After months—sometimes years—of painstaking deliberation and preparations, in the spring one or more laureates are named. The jury chair has the job of calling up the recipient immediately after the decisive meeting—and someone out there is about to pick up the phone and get a happy surprise! A public announcement of the laureate is made on the same day at a press conference in Stockholm which is broadcast online. Public interest is high and news of the decision is picked up by media around the world.

The announcement of the 2021 laureate takes place on March 30. More information will be published in January.
