Excellence in Institutional Writing Awards entries open now

Entries for the 2021 Excellence in Institutional Writing Awards are open. The NASW Excellence in Institutional Writing Awards were established to recognize high-caliber publicly accessible science writing produced on behalf of an institution or other non-media organization. We especially seek to recognize science writing that is shaped by a variety of perspectives, because such writing enables us to tell more broadly relevant stories that better serve our readers and communities. Therefore, we consider diversity in topics, sources, audience and authors to be a critical component of excellence.

Entries for the competition, for material published or broadcast in 2020, are due February 1, 2021. 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 the year and encourage your colleagues to enter, too.

For complete rules, a link to the online entry system, and an archive of recent winners, visit nasw.org/excellence. 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.

In an effort to support diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field, there is no submission fee for members of the following journalism organizations:

(Just select your organization(s) when prompted on the online entry form.)

Help us cast a wide net for excellence and spread the word! #SciWriAwards
