BAFA Awards

BAFA currently has two awards:  the Distinguished Academic Award (DAA) and the Life-time Achievement Award (LAA).  

To make a nomination for these awards, please complete and return the appropriate nomination form to the BAFA administrator via email (bafa@sheffield.ac.uk).  The deadline for the current nomination process is Friday 17 October 2014.

Distinguished Academic Award (DAA)

It is intended that the DAA should be madeannual to an individual who has made a substantial and directcontribution to UK academic accounting and finance life. Suchcontributions could have been received through research, teaching andpublic service. It should be noted that research contributions are not the only form of distinction recognised, although it is likely that itis a highly important form. The award will normally only be given to an individual who has spent a substantial amount of time in his or her academic career within a higher education institution within the UK. The award can only be made once to any given individual.

BAFA will seek nominations for this award from its membership in the Autumn of each year. Each year a sub-committee will consider the nominations, together with any other names it sees fit to consider. The sub-committee will then make a recommendation, along with a brief report on the process followed, to the BAFA Executive Committee as to whom the award should be made. Normally, the sub-committee would comprise the current Chairperson, the current Vice-Chairperson, the General Secretary, one of the current editors of the British Accounting Review, plus one other member of the Executive Committee.  The award would then be made at the following BAFA Annual Conference, subject to the individual concerned agreeing to accept the award.

The current award stands at £1,000. The monetary size of the award willbe reviewed each year by the BAFA Executive Committee.

The chief responsibility of the award-holder is to present the paperduring one of the plenary sessions at the BAFA Annual Conference subsequent to the Annual Conference at which the award is given.  Subject to appropriate editing, it is expected that the paper presented will appear, as an invited paper, in the British Accounting Review in the March issue of the calendar year following presentation. Given this responsibility, it will normally (although not inevitably) be the case that the award will be given to a currently active academic.
