AAAS KAVLI SCIENCE JOURNALISM AWARDS ARE NOW GLOBAL

The AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards are now global. A doubling of the endowment by The Kavli Foundation allows us to open the competition for the first time to journalists from around the world in each of the eight reporting categories. We will present two awards in each category: a Gold award ($5,000) and a Silver award ($3,500)

The awards program, now in its 70th year, recognizes outstanding reporting for a general audience and honors individuals for coverage of the sciences, engineering, and mathematics. Stories on the environment, energy, science policy, and health qualify if they deal in a substantive way with underlying science. Independent committees of journalists select the winning entries.

The contest is administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The awards will be presented at the AAAS Annual Meeting in February 2016 in Washington, D.C. The award covers travel and lodging expenses for winners in each category.
