The Carolyn Dexter and William H. Newman Awards are all-Academy awards, selected by an inclusive nomination process and dedicated award committees. Each paper is self-nominated through the Academy's abstract submission entry portal to the division or interest group of their choice. Each of the twenty-five divisions or interest group program chairs then nominates one paper to be considered by the respective award committee. From this pool, the award committees formally review and select recipients for the awards.
