Terms of reference
The prize is awarded biennially to an exceptional scientist, in the early stages of their career, working in the broadly defined area of Liquids and Complex Fluids. The winner will receive £250, a certificate and may be asked to give a lecture at a general meeting.

Eligibility
Those eligible for awards should be members of the group and should have made a substantial contribution to the development or reputation of physics in the UK or Ireland.

The Liquids and Complex Fluids Group committee defined “early career” as those individuals with no more than ten years postdoctoral experience (allowing for career breaks) following the award of a PhD. Those who are currently paid employees of the Institute, members of Council and those under contract to the Institute are not eligible for awards.
