Awards for the Society for Media Psychology and Technology

Mary Karapetian Alvord, PhD

As immediate Past President, I chair the 2014 Awards committee. I would like to first thank all those who submitted nominations for these awards.  With many qualified individuals, it is not an easy task for the Awards Committee. The process of Division 46 awards is that a call is placed for nominations for each of the awards in The Amplifier Magazine, both the listserv and announce-only listserv, as well as the APA Monitor. The Awards committees meets to discuss the candidates and votes on the awards.  In addition, a Student subcommittee, led by Dr. Fran Blumberg, evaluated the student dissertation award.  Recommendations are made to the voting members of the Division 46 Board, who then vote to determine the final Awardees.

I compiled a list of all previous awardees.  If you notice an omission, please let me know as we are posting this to the division website.

Please plan to attend the Division 46 Social Hour on Friday, August 8th from 5-7 PM where 2014 Awards will be given! The Social Hour will be sponsored by the Fielding Graduate University, Media Psychology Program.
