The Ann Morgan Prize was created to invite contributions that would illuminate something special about the infant’s experience and to be a forum for creative writing not bound by the rules and restrictions defining many professional publications.

Dr Ann Morgan was a creative pioneer in the field of infant mental health who provided immense support and leadership for those working with troubled infants and their families. She was a passionate advocate for infants and parents, providing transformational interventions for them and inspiration for her colleagues.

To honour Dr Ann Morgan’s contribution to the infant mental health field, AAIMHI Victoria established an annual writing prize, the Ann Morgan Prize. It was first inaugurated in 2010 as a way of honouring Ann when she retired from her official role on the AAIMHI (Vic) committee as Vice-President.

Ann’s clear, compassionate and courageous thinking about the infant and her experience within the family and the world has inspired and enriched the clinical work of many. She touched the lives of infants, parents and colleagues who were fortunate enough to meet her face to face.
