It is presented to a person who has made significant contributions to the APL programming language or to the APL community. These contributions may be Technical (i.e. new developments in the APL language itself) or Service (assistance or support to SIGAPL or the APL community generally). The award consists of a plaque and a certificate, and is accompanied by a cash prize and a lifetime membership in SIGAPL.

The award is named in honor of Kenneth E. Iverson, the creator of APL.
