Lapworth Medal

The Lapworth Medal is awarded by Council to a palaeontologist who has made a significant contribution to the science by means of a substantial body of research; it is not normally awarded on the basis of a few good papers. Council will look for some breadth as well as depth in the contributions in choosing suitable candidates.

The medal is normally awarded each year. Nominations are invited by 31st March each year. Nominations must be supported by a resume (single sheet of details) of the candidate's career, and further supported by a brief statement from each of two nominees. A list of ten (10) principal publications should accompany the nomination. The Council will reserve the right to not necessarily make an award in any one year. The Medal is presented at the Annual Meeting.
