Awards Nomination Criteria

Awards Nomination Criteria

SPIE presents several awards that recognize outstanding individual and team technical accomplishments and meritorious service to the Society.

Serving a diverse and inclusive community is a goal of SPIE.  Nominations of qualified women and members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.

Nominations must be accompanied by the following:

  • Completed award nomination form.
  • Brief citation stating the accomplishments that make the nominee deserving of this particular award.
  • A one-page narrative description of the significant aspects of the nominee's career.
  • Curriculum vitae listing educational background, positions held, publications, awards, honors, activities and offices held within the Society.
  • A minimum of two (2) letters of reference from other than the nominator. Diversity of support is preferred; not all letters of recommendation should come from nominee's organization. Letters must be received within two weeks of the nomination deadline.

See details for Joseph W. Goodman Book Writing, which is awarded biannually.
