Call for entries: Science Journalism Awards

Washington DC If you have written or produced a science story within the past year for a U.S. publication, broadcast, or online media outlet, you are encouraged to submit an entry to the 2003 AAAS Science Journalism Awards by August 1, 2003.

To download an entry form, see a complete list of contest rules, and view past winners, go to: www.aaas.org/SJAwards.

Sponsored by The Whitaker Foundation, the AAAS Science Journalism Awards program, informally known as the "AAAS pinnacle of excellence prize," represents the ultimate achievement in the field of science reporting. Six reporters will be named to receive AAAS Science Journalism Awards for 2003, recognizing exemplary communications efforts, completed between July 1, 2002 and June 30, 2003, on behalf of large and small newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and online media outlets.

Since their inception in 1945, the awards have honored more than 300 individuals for excellence in science journalism. The awards recognize outstanding reporting for a general audience and honor individuals (rather than institutions, publishers or employers) for their coverage of the sciences, engineering and mathematics. Entries are first screened by working scientists, and then passed on to judging committees composed of science journalists. The two-panel method ensures that winning entries contain scientific accuracy, originality, clarity of interpretation and value in fostering a better understanding of science by the public.

The awards will be presented at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Seattle in February 2004. Reasonable travel and hotel expenses of the award winners will be reimbursed. In cases of multiple authors or producers, only one person's expenses will be covered. Entrants agree that, if they win, they will be present to receive their award, unless prevented by circumstances beyond their control
