2016 AAAS – Kavli Science Journalism Awards


Dear Journalist,

The AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Awards are now global. A doubling of the endowment by The Kavli Foundation allows entries from around the world in each of the reporting categories. We present two awards in each category: a Gold award ($5,000) and a Silver award ($3,500).
Entries for the 2016 competition will be accepted online starting in early May. The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2016. Entries must have been published, broadcast or posted online during the contest year: July 16, 2015 to July 15, 2016.

Please read the Contest Rules and Frequently Asked Questions before submitting. Note: If the submitted work was published or broadcast in a language other than English, you must provide an English translation. Submit online at: sjawards.aaas.org

The awards recognize outstanding reporting for a general audience on the sciences, engineering, and mathematics. Stories on the environment, energy, science policy, and health qualify if they deal in a substantive way with underlying science. Independent committees of journalists select the winning entries.

The awards will be presented at the AAAS Annual Meeting in February 2017 in Boston. The award covers travel and lodging expenses for winners. For questions, contact: sja@aaas.org
