The Majorana Prize is awarded annually by the Electronic Journal of Theoretical Physics (EJTP) for outstanding contributions to theoretical physics. It is named after Ettore Majorana, an Italian theoretical physicist who began promising work on neutrino masses and Majorana equation. On the occasion of the Majorana Centenary in 2006 and the editing of the Special Issue about his Legacy in Contemporary Physics, the Electronic Journal of Theoretical Physics has established a prize in memory of the great Sicilian physicist Ettore Majorana (1906 - 1938). The "Majorana Medal" is an annual prize of excellence for the researchers who showed peculiar creativity, critical sense in mathematical and theoretical physics. For the Centenary of Ettore Majorana the (1906-1938) Electronic Journal of Theoretical Physics' (EJTP) has published a special issue dedicated to the modern development of Majorana’s legacy.
