2020 Australian Synchrotron Stephen Wilkins Medal
This medal is named in honour of Dr Stephen Wilkins, a founder of synchrotron science in Australia. It is awarded annually to the PhD student at an Australian or New Zealand University who is judged to have completed the most outstanding thesis of the past two years whose work was undertaken at and acknowledges the Australian Synchrotron, or the Australian National Beamline Facility (ANBF), or whose work acknowledges and was undertaken under the auspices of the International Synchrotron Access Program (ISAP) or the ASRP.
The medal and a monetary prize, funded by a bequest from the Wilkins family and the Australian Synchrotron, is awarded at a special session of the User Meeting. The awardee will also usually give a presentation on their research at the meeting.

All student posters presented at the meeting are automatically eligible for this prize. The prize for the best student poster is a travel bursary to attend an international conference.
The online poster session will involve submitting a two minute video to include your poster and a brief description of your work. This may involve a static image of your poster with audio recording or a video presenting your poster.
