The Connell Werry Prize is an annual prize awarded to an Advanced Trainee in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, for the most outstanding paper or poster presented at the Annual Meeting of the Faculty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. The Prize honours Dr John Werry and Dr Helen Connell, who were pioneers in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in New Zealand and Australia.

Advanced Trainees who meet the criteria and whose abstracts are accepted for presentation at the Faculty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s Annual Meeting will be automatically considered. The Prize may be given to one person, or if there are no suitable applicants, the Prize will not be awarded in that year.

The Prize consists of a certificate together with AU$1,000 to be spent attending a Faculty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Annual Scientific Meeting or an international conference in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.
