Welcome to the expanded web site for the AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards. We have been recognizing excellence in science journalism since 1945. Thanks to a doubling of our endowment by The Kavli Foundation in 2015, we now accept entries from journalists worldwide in all categories. Nearly 40 percent of our winners since 2015 have been international entrants.
The contest year is 16 July 2017 to 15 July 2018. The entry deadline is 1 August 2018. Please read the Frequently Asked Questions and Contest Rules before entering. The FAQ describes the new Video categories.
If you have questions about an existing entry, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Explore our site to learn more about the awards, the recipients and their prize-winning work, the judging process, and the latest reporting pursuits by many of our past winners. The awards program encourages better public understanding of science and its impact through rigorous, informed reporting and writing. The media landscape may change, but our commitment to the very best science writing remains the same. With our new international competition — and this expanded website — we hope to recognize and foster that excellence in new and, hopefully, surprising locales.
