Gold Medal information

The Gold Medal is the most prestigious award of The Filtration Society, awarded for the most notable contribution to the proceedings of The Society during a two year period.


All written papers that are either presented at a Society meeting or published in FILTRATION, the Society’s official journal, are automatically considered for the Gold Medal Award.


  • To encourage the advancement of knowledge in filtration and separation the Society awards every two years a Gold Medal to the person presenting in the Award period the most meritorious paper on particle/fluid separation or a related topic.
  • The Award period is the two years prior to 30 June in the presentation year. Only written papers presented orally to the Society’s meetings, or to a meeting sponsored by the Society or papers published in the Journal of The Filtration Society or the Transactions of The Filtration Society are eligible for the award.
  • The papers must be original and not have been previously published or considered for the Award. It is not necessary for the subject matter to be based on the author(s) own original research; all categories of paper, for example, review papers and industrial or academic papers are eligible for consideration.
  • The papers will be judged by an Adjudication Committee whose decision will be final.
  • The Adjudication Committee will be selected by the Council of the Society and will comprise people who are pre-eminent in the topics of particle/fluid separation.
  • If in the opinion of the Adjudication Committee, no paper reaches the required standard no Award shall be made.
  • If there is more than one paper considered to be of equal merit then special arrangements will be made for the presentation of the Award.
  • The Award will normally be announced at the Annual General Meeting of the Society in the presentation year and presented at the Annual Dinner.
  • Members of the Adjudication Committee at the time of adjudication are not eligible to receive the Award.
  • The Society reserves the right to publish the Award winning paper.
