The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the Kavli Foundation are calling for applications from science journalists for the prestigious AAAS KAVLI Science Journalism Awards.

Since their inception in 1945, the AAAS Science Journalism 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.

All categories of the competition are open to journalists doing work for independent news organizations around the globe. In each category, there are now two awards: Gold, with a prize of $5,000, and Silver, with a prize of $3,500. The awards are presented each year at the AAAS Annual Meeting in February.

The entry deadline is 1 August 2021. Entries must have been published, broadcast or posted online from 16 July 2020 to 15 July 2021.
