Nominate your choice

Any Fellow or member of the Society may nominate candidates to receive a medal or award.


Nominations should consist of a completed nomination form with a statement of 200-300 words outlining why the candidate should receive the award, a Curriculum Vitae (CV) of the candidate and written support of 200 words from two or three additional Fellows or members of the Society. Membership numbers of the proposer and supporters should be included in all correspondence.

It is important that the proposer’s statement pays attention to the remit of the specific award.

The two or three supporters to the nomination should submit their letters to the Society independently of the proposer.

All nomination materials, including letters from the supporting Fellows/members should be sent to director@rgs.org by the nomination deadline of 5.00pm on Monday 26 February 2018.

Refer to the full nomination guidelines (PDF) for further information on the nomination process, including whether two or three supporting letters are required.
