Due to a continued increase in qualifying articles, reader interest and author submissions, CVIR introduced the "Editors' Medal" in 1997. Subsequently, in 2012, the "CVIR Awards" (formerly known as: "Awards for Outstanding Service to the Journal") were also launched to honour its most active non-Editorial Board members from the previous year.
The awards are handed over during CIRSE's annual meeting, becoming a yearly CVIR tradition. The CVIR awards are:
• Most cited article
• Most downloaded article
• Article with the best media performance (introduced in 2016)
• Outstanding service to the journal for the most reviews carried out
