The European Science Writer of the Year Award is co-ordinated by the ABSW with support from Johnson & Johnson Innovation. Representative organisations for science journalism throughout Europe are asked to nominate their entry, with the mechanism by which they decide their entrant being determined by the organisation concerned. The ABSW decides its entrant by the ABSW Board considering entries made during the main ABSW Awards (in previous year's the ABSW asked its members to nominate individuals for this award but in 2018 it was decided to throw this open to self-entry like all other ABSW awards).
