Journalists reporting for local and regional media in any format anywhere in the UK or Ireland are now eligible for a £1,000 prize from the Association of British Science Writers.

The ABSW realises that local and regional press are facing difficult times, and has launched the new award to reward excellence and independence in reporting on local or regional issues in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

The award is open for entries until 31 January. Enter here:

The award will recognise the work of a journalist covering STEM subjects in a local or regional outlet. This could be news or features, in print, online or broadcast media but the item must clearly be aimed at a local or regional audience. Submissions are limited to one per person.
