The Antisemitism Policy Trust was awarded the prestigious Sjur Lindebrække Memorial Prize at the Norwegian Høyre party conference in Oslo on 17 March 2019. The award is given each year by the party to individuals or organisations which promote essential human rights.

Past recipients include Svetlana Gannushkina, a leading Russian rights activist working with migrants and refugees, the Cuban dissident and blogger Yoani Sanchez and Lilian Tintori, a Venezuelan activist and the wife of the imprisoned opposition leader Leopoldo López.
