Ceremony for the 2022 AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Award winners
The virtual award ceremony honoring the 2022 winners of the AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards took place on March 3 in conjunction with the 2023 AAAS Annual Meeting. Watch the ceremony here, with the introduction of the winners and their acceptance remarks.
The event was hosted by Laura Helmuth, editor in chief of Scientific American. Sudip Parikh, AAAS CEO and executive publisher of the Science family of journals, also participated, as did Stacey Bailey, director of communications for The Kavli Foundation. In 2009, the foundation endowed the awards program — which had been established in 1945 — and doubled its commitment in 2015 in order to make the program global.
The 2022 contest drew entries from a record 63 countries. Winners included journalists in India, China, Australia, South Korea, Germany and the United Kingdom. Stories exploring the behavior of small animals at the edge of the visible world and others dealing with world-changing forces of climate change are among the award-winning entries. A trio of stories on aspects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic also were honored.
