Nominations for EGU Angela Croome Award open till 15 June, science journalists encouraged to nominate self or others

6 June 2023

Established in 2019, the Angela Croome Award promotes excellence in Earth, space and planetary science journalism. It is named after Angela Croome, a pioneering UK science journalist who specialised in reporting space research and underwater archaeology.

Complementing the EGU Science Journalism Fellowship, the Award recognises the invaluable role of Earth, space and planetary science communication in raising awareness of the global challenges our planet faces. This year’s nominations remain open till 15 June 2023.

Science journalists are encouraged to nominate themselves or other reporters who meet the following criteria:
• Achieving excellence in bringing new information or concepts about science to the public’s attention, with particular emphasis on discoveries that are relevant to Europe and European citizens.
• Making Earth, space or planetary sciences more accessible and interesting to general audiences, with an objective, clear and constructive approach.

Nominees must be journalists working in any medium: print or electronic media, broadcast or cable station/network, web publishing. Only one author of a published journalism piece may be nominated. The nominee may also be a freelance journalist. For more eligibility conditions and the nomination guidelines, please check the Proposal and selection of candidates page.
