Location Royal Statistical Society, Errol Street, London EC1Y 9LX

We invite all fellows and those with an interest in our work to the ceremony for the Royal Statistical Society Statistical Excellence Awards, which will be followed by the Society’s summer drinks reception.
 
Our annual Excellence Awards ceremony is the ideal time to celebrate all the fantastic work that has been done with statistics and data over the past year. 
 
Every year we recognise the outstanding efforts of journalists in their use of data and statistics in the media with the Statistical Excellence in Journalism Awards. This year the awards are kindly sponsored by the Economic and Social Research Council. ESRC’s executive chair, Professor Jennifer Rubin, will be presenting the award for the ‘Explaining the Facts’ category. 
 
We will also commend, in partnership with the UK Statistics Authority, the work of statisticians in government with the Campion Award for Excellence in Official Statistics. We are grateful to Civil Service World who are the media partner for this year’s prize. 
 
Also to be presented at the ceremony is the Statistical Excellence in Early Career Writing Award, awarded in partnership with Significance magazine and the RSS Young Statistician Section.
 
The awards will be hosted by RSS President, Sir David Spiegelhalter.
