The Matanel award

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?"
Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14

The Matanel Award encourages mid-career artists/researchers/social and educational workers who devote themselves to a task or a mission whose scope extends beyond the limits of their professional activity. With noble hearts, these individuals work behind the scenes for the welfare of others without expecting anything in return. They are not celebrities but everyone would extol their human and professional qualities.
     
Each year, the 25,000 $ Matanel Award is given in three selected fields. To be eligible for the Matanel Award, candidates must:
    
- be mid-career professionals;
- work behind the scenes;
- be known for their extraordinary human qualities;
- invest several years in his/her action.
    
The prize is given to the laureates to encourage them in their mission and activity.
    
The Matanel Award is allocated by the Matanel Foundation in collaboration with a partner chosen for its qualities and its achievements.
