Our Division of Forensic Psychology (DFP) has revised its award process this year and five categories are now open for nominations.
The DFP awards celebrate the work of forensic psychologists in practice and research, recognising success and sharing innovative work with a wider audience.
Winners are announced ahead of the DFP annual conference, to be held in Liverpool in June.
The five awards are:
Excellence in forensic psychology practice
This award replaces the senior practitioner award, and recognises the work of forensic psychologists who have demonstrated excellence in practice.
Excellence in forensic psychology research
This new award replaces the senior academic award, and is given to an academic psychologist who has conducted research which has had a significant impact in the field of forensic psychology.
Excellence in forensic psychology practice or research - early career
Replacing the junior award, this new award celebrates the work of recently qualified forensic psychologists who have demonstrated excellence early in their career.
Lifetime contribution to forensic psychology
Nominations for this award are welcome on behalf of forensic psychologists who have made an outstanding and sustained professional contribution to the discipline. It replaces the lifetime achievement award.
Student prize for excellence in forensic psychology
This award is given for postgraduate and doctoral level projects which have made a valuable contribution to the field of forensic psychology.
Nominations close at 9am on Monday 1 April.
Winners will be invited to the conference, with their expenses and entry fee covered.
