The British Dietetic Association Awards and prestigious Honours recognise the outstanding contributions individuals make in promoting the BDA and advancing dietetics. We bestow these annually to our members who do so much for us.
BDA Awards celebrate outstanding individuals within the dietetic profession. In 2019 a number of new awards were developed to recognise a fuller range of dietetic achievements.
The awards were presented at the awards ceremony on Tuesday 4 July 2023 in Birmingham. Check out our 2023 Awards Ceremony round-up here.
The Digital Innovation Award recognises outstanding achievements in integrating technology into dietetic practice.
The Dorothy Hopwood Award for Professional Achievement recognises a member of the dietetic support workforce who has made a valuable and significant contribution to the profession.
This award is to recognise a rising star who has been in dietetics for ten years or less who has created significant impact in the profession in the early stages of their careers.
This award is to celebrate an individual or group who has been particularly influential on social media. It could be across a range of social media channels or just one, and could be a specific campaign or a range of activities.
The General Education Trust Fund has a long history of supporting the science and practice of dietetics through the promotion of national awards which recognise the excellent work carried out by many BDA members, from publishing original research work, through to innovation in practice and educational resources. Awards include Rose Simmonds Award; Elizabeth Washington Award and Dame Barbara Clayton Award.
The following are awarded from our office to thank member volunteers who have made the most significant contribution to the way in which we represent our members and the profession.
This award thanks one representative who has demonstrated the qualities of excellence and commitment.
Each year the BDA says thank you to one group which has demonstrated why it should be regarded 'Specialist Group of the Year'.
