|Richard Glazebrook Medal and Prize|
|Awarded for||Outstanding and sustained contributions to leadership in a physics context|
|Sponsored by||Institute of Physics|
|Reward(s)||Gold medal, £1,000|
The Richard Glazebrook Medal and Prize is awarded annually by the Institute of Physics to recognise leadership in the field of physics. It was established in 1966 and named in honour of Sir Richard T. Glazebrook, the first president of the Institute of Physics. It was originally a silver medal with a £250 prize.
The award consists of the medal, a cash prize and a certificate. In 1992, the Institute decided that the medal and prize should become one of its Premier Awards and that, from 2008, it should be one of its Gold medals.
