  • Contribution to the Field
  • Early Career Award
  • Taught Masters
  • Best Book
  • Best Paper in Regional Studies
  • Best Referee for Regional Studies
  • Best Paper in Spatial Economic Analysis
  • Best Referee for Spatial Economic Analysis
If you want to find out more about the awards - including nominations and how it all works, go to the Awards section of the RSA website.

The awards ceremony isn't until the Autumn, but the nominations must be in by May 30 this year. The awards were presented last year by Sir Peter Hall at the House of Lords. The photo below shows Taught Masters Award winner Pedro do Amaral receiving his certificate from Sir Peter:
