General Nomination Guidelines
The Research Awards Committee will use a system of independently selected referees fluent in the language of the nominated publication(s) to assess work in languages other than those represented on the committee. For nominations made in a language other than English, nominators should provide a list of at least three referees with superior content expertise and language proficiency, but the committee will choose referees autonomously.
Only ICA members may make nominations.
All nominees must be ICA members with the exception of those nominated for the:
* Steven H. Chaffee Career Achievement Award
* James W. Carey Urban Communication Grant
Members of the ICA Research Awards Committee and its subcommittees may also make nominations, but no ICA member who makes a nomination or who is nominated for an award can serve on the committee judging the nomination.
Supporting materials should be sent to the person making the nomination. All nominators must submit one PDF containing all of the following:
Letter(s) of nomination, not to exceed two pages apiece, speaking directly to each of the award criteria from the description.
Publication(s) relevant to the award (If the publication is a book, arrangements should be made with the publisher to ship 5 copies to Jennifer Le at ICA, 1500 21st Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036, USA).
Additional required material(s) specified for the award, and CV(s) of the nominee(s). To find out more information about each award, visit our awards page.
