The Nobel Peace Prize was established by Alfred Nobel’s will of 1895 and was awarded for the first time in 1901, like the other prizes established by Nobel himself.
Unlike the other Nobel laureates, the peace prize is awarded in Norway, and not in Sweden. The Nobel Peace Prize giving ceremony is held in Oslo. The winner of the award is chosen by the Norwegian Nobel Committee, made up of five people chosen by the Norwegian Parliament. The announcement of the decision is made in mid-October and the award is delivered to the Oslo city hall. It is also the only Nobel prize that can be awarded not only to individuals, but also to entire organizations.
Greenpeace has never won the Nobel Peace Prize. It was won by Amnesty International, Medici senza frontiere and the European Union.
