AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards open for international Journalists.
Since their inception in 1945, the AAAS Science Journalism Awards have honored distinguished reporting on science by professional journalists. The awards, an internationally recognized measure of excellence in science journalism, go to individuals (rather than institutions, publishers or employers) for coverage of the sciences, engineering and mathematics.
The awards are presented every year at the AAAS Annual Meeting in February. In each category, there are now two awards: Gold, with a prize of $5,000, and Silver, with a prize of $3,500. AAAS will reimburse winners for reasonable travel and hotel expenses. In cases of multiple authors or producers, only one person’s travel expenses will be covered.
