This award was established to honour Dr. Seymour H. Hutner. It is presented annually, to a Society member within 15 years of their PhD (or comparable terminal degree) who has made outstanding contributions in some area(s) of protistology. Along with the prestige that accompanies this award, recipients are given a cash prize provided by the endowed Hutner Fund and are invited to present a special lecture at the following annual meeting of the Society.

We now encourage members to submit nominations for the Hutner Prize (to David Montages, dmontag@liv.ac.uk, Chair of the Awards Committee) accompanied by the names of three individuals who could be approached to write supporting letters. The nominator should first contact the potential nominee to ensure that they wish to be nominated Those writing support letters must be familiar with the nominee’s research activity and be authorities in the area of specialty. Nominees will remain in the active file for three years or until the end of their eligibility.
