Prizes and Medals

Prizes and medals are an important means of recognising and celebrating achievement. Each year the British Academy awards a range of prizes and medals on the recommendation of specialist committees. Presentations are made at a special award ceremony each autumn.

Two new awards will be made for the first time in 2014: the Brian Barry Prize for Political Science and the Neil & Saras Smith Medal for Linguisitcs.
