The prize is funded directly by Appita. It takes the form of a bronze sculpture of about 120 mm diameter, mounted on polished wood, with a cast bronze plate bearing the winners name.

*Due to the Conference taking place later in the year it was decided to award the prize in the current year rather than the preceding year
