Jane Jacobs Prize Recipients

The Jane Jacobs Prize is funded by the Avana Capital Corporation and includes an annual stipend of $3,000 for three years, to be used by the recipients in any way they choose. The recipients are also invited to meet together to discuss their experiences and knowledge of what makes this city work.

The Jane Jacobs Prize was announced in 1997 at the end of a five-day international celebration called Jane Jacobs: Ideas that Matter. Hundreds of the world's most prominent thinkers and community leaders attended the Toronto event to exchange ideas and celebrate Jacobs' work. The prize was created to build on the spirit of that gathering.

In 2014, Spacing magazine took over the administration of the award.
