The National Association of Science Writers' Science in Society Journalism Awards  encourage the kind of critical, probing article that would not receive an award from an interest group. Separate prizes and Certificates of Recognition will be awarded for investigative or interpretive reporting about the sciences and their impact for good and bad. Work must have been published or broadcast between Jan 1 and Dec 31. NASW will award separate cash prizes of $2,500 for writing judged best in each of five categories: books, commentary or opinion, science reporting, science reporting for a local or regional market and longform science reporting. Winners and their publishers/broadcasters will also receive certificates. Deadline: Feb 1, 2017.
