Jackson Hole Science Media Awards
Science plays a profound role
in our daily lives in ways that we can scarcely imagine, from the
infinitesimal to the infinite. This year, to recognize media that best
depicts the wonders of science to a broad audience, we are delighted to
announce the inaugural Jackson Hole Science Media Awards!
Encouraging the development of
compelling media that best translate the complexities of science to the
public, the Awards will provide a forum to connect influential media
professionals with leading scientists from around the world, and
showcase finalists and award winners at the 2012 Symposium as well as other public and industry events.
With 17 award categories for
competition as well as Best of Festival and Special Jury awards,
eligible programs may be of any length, may originate in any format
(including animation) and be produced for theatrical, television
broadcast, internet, institutional or public media distribution.
Submissions must be completed between June 1, 2010 & May 31, 2012,
but need not have been broadcast or publicly exhibited.
The deadline for
submission is June 1, 2012. All submissions will be uploaded
electronically to a secure and protected website to keep the competition
as environmentally friendly as possible, and ensure the broadest
participation of international jurors during the preliminary judging
phase. To nominate a preliminary judge, contact email@example.com.
