Presentation Awards

There are four awards to be presented at the conference:

  • The Arnold Huddart Medal, The Arnold Huddart Medal was established in 1990 for the encouragement of original and promising research papers at the Annual Scientific Conference. The adjudication panel consists of one member from each of the Society's five main membership categories and is chaired by the Vice President of the Society. Papers are judged on content, presentation and handling of the discussion following presentation of the paper. The paper should be of general interest and understandable to all disciplines of the Society. The prize is normally awarded to a presenter under the age of 40 years, at the time of presentation. The rules have been amended in recent times and priority is now given to sole authors over multi-authored papers. The decision of the adjudication panel is final.

  • The Healing Foundation Poster Prize for the best poster

  • The Presidents Prize, Effective April 2011, the Society is pleased to introduce the award of the President's Prize that consists of a medal and cash prize of £100. It is eligible to members of the Society for a verbal presentation at the CFSGBI annual conference which is considered to have made a significant clinical contribution to cleft lip and palate care.

  • The Quality Improvement Prize, In April 2015 the Society introduced the award of the Audit Prize. As of February 2019 The Audit Prize was renamed The Audit and Quality Improvement Prize which is an award for the best example of a clinical audit or quality improvement project which enhances our understanding of a particular aspect of cleft care and will help shape future clinical practice.
