The Association of British Science Writers (ABSW) has announced the finalists of the 2018 edition of the European Science Writer Award. The winner will be announced at the 5th European Conference of Science Journalists (ECSJ2018) on Sunday 8 July in Toulouse, France.
“This competition has been growing each year, and we’ve had a record number of entries this year,” said Mico Tatalovic, chairman of ABSW. “It’s fantastic to see so many excellent science journalists producing an amazing variety of high-quality content around the continent.”
“I’m looking forward to meeting the winners at the ECSJ in Toulouse in July,” said Mico Tatalovic. “I hope the award encourages other journalism associations to set up their own awards to celebrate excellence and courage in science reporting,” he added. “It has already helped us to profile excellence in science journalism beyond our national borders and to get over the language barriers, as well as to nurture a sense of science journalism community that has shared values and goals.”
