We're always looking for new voices and new ideas to add to the TED community. Through our Prize, Fellowship, TED-Ed lessons and TED Talks, we take those great ideas and help them grow — but they start with your suggestions. See all the ways to let us know about the most exciting, talented people in your network.
We're looking for visionaries and change makers to take the stage and share their ideas with the world. Submit an idea for the chance to share it on the TED2020 stage (and spread the word too!) Public speaking experience is not required and there are no age restrictions.
Deadline for submissions: May 29, 2019.
Each TED and TEDGlobal conference features more than 50 of the world's most innovative and influential speakers. At TED, we search year-round for presenters who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. If you know someone who belongs on the TED stage, or if you belong there yourself, we want to hear from you! Please use our speaker recommendation form to tell us why this person would be well-suited to speak at TED. More about speaking at TED
Twice a year, the TED Fellows program opens applications to find a new class of outstanding thinkers and doers. We are looking for the next generation of innovators who have demonstrated remarkable accomplishment and potential to positively affect the world. Though we target innovators aged 21 to 40, we encourage anyone over 18 years old to apply.
Do you have a meaningful story from your life that you can’t tell anyone — perhaps because it affects someone you love, your career or your role in a community? Consider applying for our new audio series, Sincerely, X. We’re looking to open and expand the world of spellbinding, perspective-shifting TED Talks through the intimacy of personal, anonymous stories.
We invite you to use this submission form to share your story, and emphasize why anonymity is crucial in its telling.
