In order to remain open to the various ways in which the qualities of a candidate may be conveyed, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has not introduced a special nomination submission form. The nomination need not be lengthy, but should include:

the name of the candidate,

an explanation of why the individual or organisation is considered by the nominator to be a worthy candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize,

and the name, title and academic or professional affiliation of the nominator, (ref. criteria for nominators).
