Social Work Image Award

NASW-NYC seeks to identify and acknowledge the unique contributions of social workers helping to advance the profession each year, through its Social Work Image Award.


We invite you to recognize the exemplary work of an individual social worker. In certain compelling circumstances, we will also consider honoring a small team. Additionally, please share this opportunity with your colleagues and coworkers.


We are seeking nominations for the following areas of practice. There will be one award in each area:

Direct Practice


Community Organization or Advocacy


Guidelines for award:

 Membership in NASW (Nominees will have the opportunity to join if they are not already a member)

 Only social workers who have BSWs, MSWs, or PhDs/DSWs are eligible for an award

 A Social Work Image Award may be granted to a group, team or collaboration

New this year:
Once the Image Award recipients have been selected, one will also be named the NASW-NYC Social Worker of the Year!
