Congratulations to James Blake (Leicester) and Sam Tuttle (Southampton), who have won this year's Rishbeth prizes.
James won the prize for the best MIST poster - his poster was on "H3+ peak altitude emission on Saturn".
Sam won the prize for the best MIST student talk - his talk was entitled "Estimating the energy spectrum of auroral electron precipitation at subkilometre spatial scales using multi-monochromatic optical observations".
Both will be contributing articles to A&G, so if you missed either of these presentations, you will be able to read about them there.
Congratulations to James and Sam, and many thanks to all who presented talks and posters at NAM.
Congratulations to Simon Thomas (Reading) and Hanna Dahlgren (Southampton/KTH), who won this year's Rishbeth prizes for their presentations at the Spring MIST meeting.

Hanna won the prize for the best poster, for "Investigation of the electrodynamics and formation mechanism of a polar cap arc".
