The Guy Medals are awarded by the Royal Statistical Society in three categories; Gold, Silver and Bronze. The Gold Medal is awarded triennially, the other two are awarded annually. They are named after William Guy.

  • The Guy Medal in Gold is awarded to those "who are judged to have merited a signal mark of distinction by reason of their innovative contributions to the theory or application of statistics". It can be awarded both to fellows (members) of the Society and to non-fellows.
  • The Guy Medal in Silver is awarded only to fellows and recognises a paper or papers "of special merit" formally presented at an Ordinary Meeting of the Society or published in its journals.
  • The Guy Medal in Bronze recognises a paper or papers presented at any meeting or conference run by the Society or by one of its sections or local groups, or published in the Society's journals. It is awarded only to fellows of the Society and members of one of its local groups or sections, with preference given to those under 35.
