There are three Prizes for the three objectives of the LUI Che Woo Prize (each a “Prize Category”) every year. If there is no appropriate awardee for any Prize Category in any particular year, no Prize will be awarded for that Prize Category in that year.

Each Prize is awarded to a single recipient (i.e. no sharing of a Prize) who can be an individual or an organization.
Self nominations are not permitted.

The Board of Governors is the governing body of LUI Che Woo Prize Limited (“the Prize Company”), a charitable company limited by guarantee incorporated in Hong Kong. The Prize Company is led and supervised by the Board of Governors.

Unlike other international prizes which have specific fields, the LUI Che Woo Prize is a new and prestigious international accolade awarded to individuals or organisations who have displayed remarkable achievements towards the three objectives of the Prize thereby contributing to world civilisation. Thus, the coverage of the LUI Che Woo Prize is very broad, the recipients not being limited to academics and scientists. The LUI Che Woo Prize recognises accomplishments beneficial to mankind and also encourages the continuation of that work for which its laureates have been chosen. It transcends all boundaries of nations, it promotes universal values and it sows seeds for the continuous development of a better and harmonious world.
