Sylvester-Bradley Award

Since ISO14 (Shizuoka), an award is made for the best student oral presentation. The award was funded by the editors of the 'Stereo-Atlas of Ostracod Shells' and named in honour of Professor Peter Sylvester-Bradley, the founder of the journal.

The first recipient was Gengo Tanaka (then of Shizuoka University). Since then the Sylvester-Bradley Award is provided by IRGO and The Micropalaeontological Society together, honoring the best oral and the best poster presentation by a young researchers. As from ISO18 (Santa Barbara) IRGO also issues an award for the best poster of all.
