Attracting over 30,000 applicants since 1976, the awards recognise and support those who carry out innovative projects that improve lives, protect the planet or expand knowledge.

Announced earlier this year, 2014's Young Laureates are as follows:

• Neeti Kailas (India)
• Olivier Nsengimana (Rwanda)
• Francesco Sauro (Italy)
• Arthur Zang (Cameroon)
• Hosam Zowawi (Saudi Arabia)

With the Young Laureates spearheading projects on a global scale within the sectors of science and health, conservation and exploration to name but a few, the Rolex Awards of Enterprise continue to be a testament to the ongoing endeavour of the human spirit.
