Award for Outstanding Contribution to Archaeology
This award recognises an individual member of the New Zealand Archaeological Association who has made a specific and outstanding contribution to archaeology. The recipient may come from any sector of archaeology, be it academic, consultancy, government department or volunteer, but they must be a member of the association. With the exception of public archaeology (recognised by the Public Archaeology Award), a varied range of contributions to the field of archaeology will be considered, such as the development of a new technology, a new theoretical or methodological approach, or significant fieldwork or data analysis. Preference will be given to specific projects, rather than worthy candidates who might be better recognised by the lifetime achievement award. Factors such as publication and/or dissemination of the work will be taken into account.
This award will be made biennially. Nominations, outlining why the candidate is a worthy recipient of the award, should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 November 2018. The winner will be announced at the conference dinner in Auckland on 30 November.
