The annual Stephen Fry Public Engagement Awards recognise our staff and students, and their work engaging non-academic audiences. Winners and nominees of the Awards are recognised for their crucial role in organising and delivering excellent public engagement, enhancing benefits to society and improving their own skills.

In 2023 the winner/s in each category will presented their work at the Discovery Days event on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 January 2023.

Each winner will receive a trophy and can access up to £1500 of funding to support their future public engagement activities.

Apply for an award

The application process is similar to previous years but we have added an extra format for submissions. To apply please complete the 2023 Stephen Fry Award Application Form, and then share information on your public engagement work in writing over two sides of A4, or submit a video of yourself/team talking about your public engagement work. Both methods of submission will be treated equally.

You can read more about the application process in our Guidance document.

The deadline for applications is Friday 9 December, at 12pm.

The Stephen Fry Awards Panel will shortlist applications and those shortlisted may be invited to present to the panel from 14-21 December 2022.

Winners in each category will be informed shortly afterwards, and invited to present for 10-15 minutes on their engagement work at the University-wide Discovery Days.
