Annual Prizes and Awards
RCPsych/BAP Poster Prizes
The Psychopharmacology Committee of the Royal College of Psychiatrists supports two poster prizes. These will be awarded to posters which report psychopharmacological research directly relevant to clinical psychiatric practice, or in the area of clinical audit or case series illustrating an important psychopharmacological observation. We particularly encourage submissions from trainee psychiatrists with an interest in this area.
Due to the cancellation of the Summer Meeting there will be no poster prizes awarded for 2020.
The Honorary General Secretary will consider likely conflicts of interest and then delegate to a number of BAP Council Members who will review nominations for the various awards. Where a BAP Council Member is requested to review a prize in which a conflict of interest arises for them (e.g. a former PhD student has been nominated) they will excuse themselves from the process and another Council Member will be asked to replace them.
Whilst Council members are not prohibited from applying for prizes, the Honorary General Secretary additionally seeks the endorsement of one of the Presidents (current, immediate past or elect), according to their expertise, and who does not have a direct conflict of interest, before any such prize is awarded to a Council Member.
