    1. Cur­rently enrolled as stu­dents in an Aus­tralian ter­tiary edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tion whose study encom­passes the field of gam­bling research
    2. Be sole pre­sen­ters of the paper
    3. Be reg­is­tered and paid NAGS mem­bers, and
    4. Be pre­sent­ing their own work which is based on the com­ple­tion of some form of research involv­ing the col­lec­tion of data.

    This Award is only avail­able to pre­sen­ters who sub­mit abstracts for the Indi­vid­ual Pre­sen­ta­tion sec­tion. Inter­ested pre­sen­ters MUST reg­is­ter their eli­gi­bil­ity for the Award on the Sub­mis­sion Form. Pre­sen­ters who do not reg­is­ter their inter­est will not be con­sid­ered for the Award.
