EFSJ is happy to announce a call for entries for the European Science Journalist of the Year 2022 award, which recognizes and promotes excellence and innovation in science journalism across Europe. The award is presented with support from ABSW.


Work published or broadcast between 01 January 2021 and 31 December 2021 is eligible. Entries will be accepted on behalf of European science journalism associations (members of either EFSJ or the World Federation of Science Journalists) as well as individuals working in a European country or whose work has been published in European media.

When submitting as an individual, an applicant from the country without an association should first become an associate member of EFSJ (5 euro per year rate) and cover a submission fee (10 euro). To do so, please contact info@efsj.eu to make a payment before submitting.

For further guidance on eligibility, please read the Award Policy and Guidelines. For questions, contact awards@efsj.eu

To submit an entry

Entries can be submitted by email at awards@efsj.eu; an application must include a short CV, a nomination letter from the association (cover letter if self-nominating), and three pieces of journalistic work either by URL or by file. If the original piece is published in a language other than English, we strongly recommend including an English translation (a translation of the script for TV or radio work). Complete applications will be confirmed by the organizing committee within 24 hours of submission.

Deadline for submissions is April 1, 2022, at 23:59 CET.
