Please note: From, and including 2017, the Hutton Medal has been awarded annually for animal sciences, earth sciences or plant sciences, rather than one discipline per year in rotation:

The awardee must have received the greater part of his/her education in New Zealand or have resided in New Zealand for not less than 10 years.
The medal will not normally be awarded in the same discipline two years in a row.
