Making a Nomination

For all of the awards the Society requests that, in nominating an individual, you submit the following:

  • A letter from the nominator which summarises the nominee's principal achievements and clearly describes the context in which these meet the criteria
  • the individual's current CV and list of publications
  • just two supporting letters from eminent colleagues confirming suitability for the award

For awards with age limits the Committee will exercise considerable discretion when considering nominees with significant breaks in their careers.

If you have any doubts about the eligibility of your nominee, please contact Sheila Mills; tel. 020 7299 4441
