Camsell Medal

How to nominate

The Awards Committee, as sole judge of nominations, shall consider the nominations submitted each year. Up to two Awards may be granted annually. However, the Committee is not bound to grant the Award in any given year.

Individuals may be nominated for the Award by any RCGS Fellow. Using the online form, please submit a letter of nomination with a rationale — of not more than 500 words — that includes a description of the significance of the nominee's contribution to the Society in any capacity, including details of service to the Board of Governors, the various committees or special activities / events.

In recognizing outstanding service to the Society, the Camsell Medal is distinct from the Massey Medal and Gold Medal which salute professional service to geography. Therefore, receipt of either of these honours does not preclude consideration for the Camsell Medal. Nominations will stand for a period of three years after which time they shall be deemed to have expired. Nominees may be re-nominated once after the expiration of their first nomination. All nominations shall be kept confidential.

Deadline for nominations is March 15.

Submit your nomination on-line now.
