The American Association for the Advancement of Science Kavli Science Journalism 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 (excluding health and clinical medicine). Winners are selected based on scientific accuracy, initiative, originality, clarity of interpretation and value in fostering a better understanding of science by the public. Categories: Large Newspaper, Small Newspaper, Magazine, Television — Spot News/Feature Reporting, Television — In-depth Reporting, Radio, and Online. The Children's Science News category is open to journalists worldwide, for work distributed via any medium. Entries may include stories on life, physical and social sciences; engineering and mathematics; and policy issues that are grounded in science or technology. Entries should be intended for general, nontechnical audiences. Deadline: Aug 1 annually.
In each category, there are now two awards: Gold, with a prize of $5,000, and Silver, with a prize of $3,500. Sponsored by The Kavli Foundation.
