Call for Applications: Science Journalism Contest 2020


Deadline: 1 August 2020


We have been recognizing excellence in science journalism since 1945 and are celebrating our 75th anniversary this year. Thanks to a doubling of our endowment by The Kavli Foundation in 2015, we accept entries from journalists worldwide in all categories.


There will be two awards for each category, a Gold award worth US$5,000 and a Silver award worth US$3,500. One winner for each award in each category will also receive travel expenses to attend an awards ceremony in February 2021 at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona.


Do explore our website to learn about the prize-winning work of our award recipients and the history of the awards program, which encourages better public understanding of science and its impact through rigorous, informed reporting and writing. The media landscape may change, but our commitment to outstanding science writing remains the same.
