Entries for this year’s Science in Society Journalism Awards are open

Entries for the 2018 Science in Society Journalism Awards are open, and this year we have restructured our largest category, science reporting, by submission length to encourage a more even distribution of entries. With cash prizes, no entry fees for members, and submissions open to members and non-members alike, we hope that you enter your best work from this year and encourage your colleagues to enter, too. Entries close Feb. 1, 2018.

For complete rules, a link to the online entry system, and an archive of recent winners, visit nasw.org/scienceinsociety. NASW members and those who already have NASW guest accounts can use their existing NASW website login information. New users will be prompted to create a new guest account.

The Science in Society Journalism Awards provide recognition for investigative or interpretive reporting about the sciences and their impact on society and are funded by the National Association of Science Writers without subsidy from any professional or commercial interest. We've added a small entry fee to support the increased number of categories, but fear not, members enter for free. Award committee chair Alla Katsnelson will recruit committees of accomplished peers to judge the entries. If you are interested in volunteering, we’ll be sending details about how to get involved early in the new year. In the new year, we will also be revealing a new NASW award for institutional writing so stay tuned.

I would like to volunteer :)
