In this paper, a new hybrid iterative algorithm is constructed using the shrinking projection method introduced by Takahashi. The sequence of the algorithm is proved to converge strongly to a common element of the set of solutions of generalized mixed equilibrium problem and the set of common fixed points of a finite family of multivalued strictly pseudocontractive mappings in real Hilbert spaces. Furthermore, we apply our main result to convex minimization problem.
