Qualification for receiving the Dobson Henry Medal
For outstanding contributions in the Audio-Visual Medium
For furthering the activity of the Medium.
For long service to the Medium
Organising events, such as The Internationals, The Nationals, workshops & AV Days, working on committees such as the AV Group and the RPS Distinctions Panel.
Working for charity over many years, using AV as the medium.
Helping and advising others in public, and also for those people who work quietly in the background.
Although production of ground breaking sequences is a factor and should be taken account this alone does not quality. The authors will have been recognised in other ways. It is open to all who work in the field of AV no matter what nationality or country of residence and not just AV Group Members.
It is hoped that to receive the Medal the candidate will qualify in more than one of the above, but in exceptional circumstances one category may suffice.
