This year, it is still Nevanlinna Prize https://www.mathunion.org/imu-awards/rolf-nevanlinna-prize/rolf-nevanlinna-prize-2018
Wikipedia page on this prize https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nevanlinna_Prize does not have any information that it has been discontinued -- although it has a link to discussions about this possibility.
Are you sure that the official decision to discontinue has already been made?

My understanding is that (1) the Nevanlinna prize has been discontinued due to concerns raised by Nevanlinna's alleged interactions with elements of the Nationalsozialismus. (2) A different name will be chosen so that the prize can continue under a different name. (3) The Finnish government has suspended its funding of the prize. (4) An alternative funder is currently being sought out. MK

Each congress is memorialized by a printed set of Proceedings recording academic papers based on invited talks intended to be relevant to current topics of general interest. Being invited to talk at the ICM has been called "the equivalent [...] of an induction to a hall of fame.""
