Every year the PGRG gives prizes for the best dissertations in population geography in the UK. These are the Joanna Stillwell Undergraduate Dissertation Prize and The Bob Woods Postgraduate Dissertation Prize. These prestigious prizes each carry an award of £100.

Last year (2016) these were awarded to Joseph Hussey (UCL) and Baris Senay (Sussex) for the best undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations respectively. Congratulations to Joseph and Baris.
