The Nobel Peace Prize
The Nobel Peace Prize has been presented in Oslo on December 10 since 1901. The laureates always stay at the Grand Hotel and the festive banquet in their honor is always held in Speilen.
The Peace Prize is given out by a committee of five members chosen by the Storting, the Norwegian parliament. The Nobel committee is completely neutral.
Announcement of the winner takes place in mid-October, and the prize is presented every year on December 10, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death.
