Outstanding Achievement Award

The specific criteria for ’outstanding achievement’ may be constituted in one of two ways:

  • By one or more singular outstanding contributions – books, articles, reports, lectures, public activities, etc, or, in aggregation: i.e. through the production over time of a significant body of work which amounts in total to an outstanding achievement, or a sustained contribution to enhancing the discipline’s interests on the national or international stage.
  • Nominators for the prize should be members of the BSC.
  • The prize is open to academics and practitioners in criminology and criminal justice, and cognate fields. Nominations should be by way of a letter or an email to info@britsoccrim.org with the name and full contact details of the nominee and up to 100 words backing up the proposal. Further details may be needed later. Before an award is made the nominated person will need to agree and be able to attend the Annual Conference to receive the award.
  • Serving members of the EC are not eligible to be nominated for the prize. The winner will be decided by majority vote of members of the Executive Committee in the meeting before the AGM.
