The Distinguished International Sport Psychology Award

is the highest award given by the ISSP. This award is given in recognition of outstanding and distinguished, long term, original contributions to the advancement of sport psychology. These award recipients (a) Have made substantial and original contributions to research through peer-reviewed publications, articles in professional journals, books, and conference presentations, over a significant period of time; and (b) Be recognised for their academic and professional leadership in sport psychology at the highest level over a significant period of time.

Upon review of this award, it is bestowed upon one (in one occasion twice) longstanding member each four years at the ISSP Conference. There are also instances when a four- year cycle does not include an award recipient for this award. Presently there are only ten award winners listed at the ISSP website, spanning 1989-2017.
