Call for Entries: The 2004 Wistar Institute Science Journalism Award

Philadelphia, PA - The newly established Wistar Institute Science Journalism Award aims to honor the most insightful and enterprising reporting on the basic biomedical sciences in print, broadcast, or online journalism during the award year. Entries for the 2004 award must have appeared between January 1 and December 31, 2003, and the deadline for submitting entries is February 29, 2004. The winner will be selected by an independent committee of accomplished science and medical journalists and will receive a certificate and cash prize of $5,000 at an award ceremony at The Wistar Institute in Philadelphia on Friday, June 4, 2004.

The award-winning work may be direct reporting on a significant research advance, an exploration of the fundamental science underlying a major news story, the identification of an emerging trend in scientific thinking, or a thoughtful investigation of the research process. Journalism that expresses the same kind of skepticism encouraged by science itself will be given particular attention, as will coverage with the prescience to identify and illuminate the significance of research that may appear, at first glance, to be more limited in scope.

The award acknowledges biomedical research as a key force for change in the world today, with important economic and social implications for the future. Intelligent, perceptive journalism written in broadly accessible language plays a primary role in communicating progress in biomedicine to the public, which both supports and is the beneficiary of basic biomedical research. For these reasons, journalistic excellence in this area is of the highest importance and deserves to be honored.

Up to five stories from an individual journalist or team of journalists may be submitted as an entry. These may be selections from a series or a collection of stories representative of the entrant's coverage of the basic biomedical sciences. Books are not eligible. The work must have appeared in Eng
