How to enter
Entries for the prize should be in the form of a scientific paper that deals with research on any entomological topic (or allied group of terrestrial organisms such as mites or spiders). The paper can be in the form of a scientific manuscript ready for publication, a paper that has been accepted for publication or a paper published since the beginning of the previous year to the closing date, but must result from the student’s higher degree studies.
Entries are to be the sole work of the entrant, apart from the normally accepted input of academic supervisors, and are to be based on work undertaken while enrolled as a student. A committee of an least three people, to be appointed by the Society's President, will judge the overall scientific merit of each entry and a list of finalists selected. The finalists will be supported to attend the Society's conference in that year to present their paper and the presentation will form part of the assessment of the winner.
