The WCC annually organizes an Award Ceremony at which the awards are conferred. Each ceremony is held in a different country with a renowned university or academic institute acting as host.

In rewarding outstanding individuals, the World Cultural Council pays tribute to their significant and remarkable achievements and to the inspiration that they bring as role models for a new generation.

Institutions that wish additional information about hosting a Ceremony should contact the Secretary General.
