Award nominations are submitted through our online Awards and Fellow Nomination System by 1 May.
We have created short video tutorials on nomination and reviewing to walk you through the process.
The nominees for awards remain on the committee's active list for most awards for three years. You will be allowed to update an unsuccessful nomination at the beginning of the next award cycle.
If during deliberations an awards committee feels that a nomination is better suited for a different award, AMS staff will go back to the nominator and provide the information passed along from the committee. The nominator will be given the opportunity to rewrite the nomination toward the suggested award and resubmit. This nomination will begin a new three-year cycle with this submission.
