Being an APS member acts as a powerful enhancement to your career and reputation.
We promote the role of psychology in all aspects of Australian life and ensure member psychologists are recognised for excellence via awards and media promotion.
As the voice of psychology, we advocate for psychologists with the Government and other key decision makers, promoting the contribution of the profession and discipline.
Awards & Prizes
Our annual program of more than 80 awards, prizes and scholarships recognise outstanding achievements across psychology.
World-class researchers, inspiring educators, leaders in practice and promising students and early-career psychologists are also celebrated.
Nominating for these awards is an excellent way to demonstrate your credentials to your peers in psychology and beyond.
Believe in Change advertising campaign
As an APS psychologist, you can expect to have your expertise widely promoted, through advertising and marketing initiatives including TV, cinema and radio campaigns and online media.
Our recent nationwide advertising campaign, Believe in Change, was developed by leading advertising agency, Cummins & Partners, to promote the power of psychologists to help people facing all types of life challenges.
We equip members with marketing material through our member identity program to ensure you are visibly aligned with the high professional standards promoted in these advertising initiatives.

Psychologists in the media
Every day we facilitate connections between our members who are experts in their field and journalists looking for psychological expertise and commentary.
Our media referral service features more than 150 APS psychologists from universities, government and non-government agencies, consulting firms, and private practices. We offer members free online media training to help build their skills and then their public profile.
The rich psychological insights members offer on TV, radio, in newspapers, magazines and online helps spread the word about the power of psychology to help people lead happier, healthier and more meaningful lives.
Psychlopaedia™ is an online publication devoted to psychology. It aims to make this immense field – the discoveries, the disorders, treatments, as well as insights into the human mind and behaviour – accessible to all.
Published by the APS, Psychlopaedia™ profiles the important work of our members and aggregates, curates and shares important psychology news and views from around the web.
Psychology Week is an annual APS initiative that aims to increase public awareness about how psychology can help people and communities lead healthier, happier and more meaningful lives. It is one of the longest running awareness events in Australia.
Each year hundreds our members are supported to hold local events that help them to promote psychology to local communities and colleagues, and celebrate the contribution they make to Australian life.
