The Moynihan Prize, instituted in 1951, was first competed for by means of an essay written on a subject decided by Council. From 1959, the subject could be of the candidate's own choosing. In 1966, the regulations were changed so that the Prize was awarded to the author of the best short paper on new work read at the annual International Surgical Congress. In the case of multiple author papers, the Medal is awarded to the person reading the paper, but the monetary award, which is currently the Association’s highest at £1,000, may be divided between the authors.

The person reading the paper must be the principal research worker and have been qualified for less than fifteen years. The paper should have some clinical application and must not have been submitted previously to any other national or international association, nor published in any Journal at the time of submission. Shortlisted papers that are found to have been presented elsewhere, or have been accepted for presentation elsewhere, will be disqualified. Competitors selected will be required to submit a manuscript suitable for publication to the BJS Society. Papers submitted for this Prize and not shortlisted will be considered for the Short Paper section of the meeting
