NZPopCon 2023 Student prizes

We are pleased to open the applications for our two awards for current or immediate past tertiary students throughout New Zealand.

The Stats NZ Jacoby Prize 2023 – awarded to best paper on a population topic written during a course of university study.  

The PANZ Newell Award 2023– awarded to the best poster by a student on any population topic. 

These awards are given as part of the New Zealand Population Conference (NZPopCon). NZPopCon 2023, Population futures in an uncertain world: The changing faces of Aotearoa New Zealand‘ is to be held at Auckland University’s Engineering Building on the 29th and 30th of August 2023.

In addition to a cash prize of $500 for the winners, the two-day conference registration fees and conference dinner cost will be paid by PANZ. The cost of travel and accommodation (if living outside Auckland) will also be covered for the winners along with 2-year free membership to the Association.

Please note that posters can be submitted by anyone wishing to do so, not just students.  All accepted posters will be eligible for the people’s choice award ($250 cash prize) for the most popular poster as voted by conference delegates.
