Annual Prizes and Awards

Outstanding Contribution Award

This award recognises and honours BAP members or staff who have made exceptional contributions to the BAP in, for example, advocacy, clinical practice, citizenship, teaching and knowledge translation or any such relevant area and whose exceptional service merits special recognition. The recipient will usually have been a long-standing member of the BAP but not necessarily a regular attendee at the annual meeting. The recipient will be invited to the annual meeting to receive a medal, certificate and complimentary registration and finance to cover travel and accommodation for up to two nights to attend the conference at which they will receive the award. The award will be announced at the conference annual dinner, but the recipient will not be expected to deliver an address.
