The membership of the Prize Committee for 2011 was:
- Professor Jane Millar (Chair)
- Professor Tim Ibell
- Professor Guy McCusker
The Prize Committee considered eight nominations, and five finalists were invited to give a short presentation of their research to the Prize Committee and an audience from the academic community. In coming to a recommendation for the prize winner, both the documentary evidence and the presentation was considered by the Prize Committee.
