Nobel Peace Prize: when is it announced and what are the bets

Every year, the Nobel Prizes They are delivered in different categories.

In this context, the season of awards It has already started and there is a lot of mystery around who will be the winner of the peace, which is the next to be announced.

Unlike what happens with the Oscarthe Martin Fierro or other type of deliveries linked to art, journalism or sports, in this case, there is no known nominees list before the award. This means that the options are many and, therefore, you can choose from hundreds of candidates for bet.

As a curiosity, the different categories of the Nobel Prizes they are announced on different days, although with a certain proximity in time. In this way, on Monday the announcement of the winner of the medicine laureate; on Tuesday, from the winner in physical; on Wednesday, from chemistry; and on Thursday, from literature. For its part, the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced this Friday, October 7 at 6 in the morning (Argentine time).
