Entries for the 2020 Contest Will Be Accepted Starting in May

We expect to open the entry site on or around May 1. The entry deadline is August 1, 2020.

We are changing some of the categories this year and will post revisions to the Categories, Submission Procedures, Contest Rules and Frequently Asked Questions when we open the entry site. Be sure to read them before starting your entry.

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.

If you have questions about an existing entry, please contact us at sja@aaas.org.

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. Follow us on Twitter @AAASKavli.
