For additional information, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page, or email

We welcome entries for active projects or programs from anywhere in the world.

The Keeling Curve Prize is awarded for current programs and projects only.

Applications centered on past work, unimplemented ideas or untested hypotheses will not be accepted.

Applications for the Keeling Curve Prize must be submitted in English. To ensure the legitimacy and accuracy of your responses, GWMP can not take responsibility for their translation.

Your project may align with more than one prize category. The application form requires that you designate a primary category for your application, but also allows you to list secondary categories for consideration. However, applicants are only eligible to win in one category in any given year.

Applicants that have not received an award are welcome to apply in subsequent years.

Previous prize winners may submit applications for new projects that are different from their previously awarded project and that utilize different methods and approaches to reduce or increase uptake of greenhouse gas emissions.

Applications that do not attempt to quantify their emissions reductions or address the project’s functional and financial scalability (Questions #8 through #10) will not be considered.

By completing an application, you are granting the Global Warming Mitigation Project permission to disseminate information about your project at its discretion. Requests for confidentiality can be designated within the application.
