Prizes and awards
Nominate your Cochrane colleagues for prizes and awards by 12 June 2023.
Every year Cochrane awards members of its Community with a range of prizes that highlight high-quality methodological research, supporting health decision-making in developing countries, and contributors who have made a significant contribution to the organization.
The winners of the 2023 prizes will be announced at the Colloquium.
You have until 12 June 2023 to make your nominations.
For any Prizes and Awards queries please email email@example.com
We encourage everyone in the Cochrane Community to review these awards and nominate colleagues.
The Kenneth Warren Prize is awarded to the principal author of whichever Cochrane Review authored by a national living in a developing country is judged to be both of high methodological quality and relevant to health problems in developing countries.
The Bill Silverman Prize is awarded to acknowledge explicitly the value of criticism of Cochrane, with a view to helping to improve its work, and thus achieve its aim of helping people make well-informed decisions about health care by providing the best possible evidence on the effects of healthcare interventions.
The Anne Anderson Award is awarded at each Cochrane Colloquium to a female member of Cochrane who has made a significant contribution to the enhancement and visibility of women's participation within Cochrane.

The Chris Silagy Prize is awarded to an individual who has made an "extraordinary" contribution to the work of Cochrane which would not be recognised outside the scope of this prize.
Nominations for the Chris Silagy Prize should be sent to Sally Green (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the name of the Prize in the subject heading. Nominations should include a nominator, two seconders, acceptance of nomination and a one-page supporting document supporting the nomination against the criteria. A selection panel of three individuals is appointed each year from past members of the Steering Group and its advisory committees, and the previous year's Prize recipient (if not conflicted). A governing committee oversees the Prize. Please read further details about the prize before submitting your nomination.
- The deadline for submissions closes at midnight on 12 June 2023
Please note that the Cochrane-REWARD prize will not be taking place this year.
