The Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications awards the following prizes: The Catherine Richards Prize; The Christopher Zeeman Medal; The David Crighton Medal; The IMA Gold Medal: The IMA Information and Inference Best Paper Prize; The IMA Leslie Fox Prize for Numerical Analysis; and The IMA Lighthill-Thwaites Prize. Below we give a brief description of these prizes and, for some of the prizes, we give a list of the prizewinners.

**The Catherine Richards Prize.**

This prize, created to preserve the memory of Catherine Richards who served as the Executive Secretart of the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications from 1987 to 1993, is awarded for the best article in the preceeding years *Mathematics Today*, a general interest publication of the Institute.

This is a joint award by the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications and the London Mathematical Society. The medal is awarded for outstanding contributions to the public understanding of mathematics. It is currently awarded every two years, the first award being made in 2008. The award of the Christopher Zeeman Medal to the first recipient, Ian Stewart, was made by Christopher Zeeman himself.

This Prize, made to an eary career researcher, is awarded every two years for the best paper in *Information and Inference*, one of the journals of the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications.

This Prize, established in 1985, is to preserve the memory of Leslie Fox, a world-leading researcher in numerical analysis and a founder member of the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications. The Prize is awarded to researchers in numerical analysis under the age of 31 on the 1st january in the year of the award. It is awarded every two years.

This Prize is in memory of the first two Presidents of the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications, namely James Lighthill and Bryan Thwaites. It is awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications in cooperation with the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium. The Prize was established in 2010 and is awarded for a submitted piece of work which is suitable for presentation to the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium.
