Nominations for the WSAVA Awards are open!

Published: 11/19/2018

Recognize dedicated colleagues who are making a lasting contribution to our global veterinary community... Each year we honour colleagues who are working hard to build our profession and community in their own country and area of expertise. With WSAVA World Congress heading to Toronto, Canada, in 2019, this year, we aim to recognize veterinarians in the Americas who have inspired their colleagues and others through their achievements.

Please send your nominations for the following:

  • The WSAVA International Award for Scientific Achievement
  • The WSAVA-Hill's Next Generation Award
  • The WSAVA Companion Animal Welfare Award
Read a description of each award and complete an online nomination at

Preference will be given to nominees from the Americas but, in the event that no suitable candidates are selected from this region, other nominees will be considered.

Please submit your nominations before the deadline of 31 December 2018.

If you have questions, please contact Emma van Rooijen at
