The **Shephard Prize** is awarded by the London Mathematical Society to a mathematician or mathematicians for making a contribution to mathematics with a strong intuitive component which can be explained to those with little or no knowledge of university mathematics, though the work itself may involve more advanced ideas. The prize will be awarded in even-numbered years^{[clarification needed]} and is the result of a donation made to the Society by Geoffrey Shephard. The Shephard Prize may not be awarded to any person who has received the De Morgan Medal or the Pólya Prize.^{[1]}^{[2]}
