Nominations Accepted For 2017 Communication Awards
January 26, 2017

The Keck Futures Initiative —a program of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and National Academy of Medicine, with the support of the W. M. Keck Foundation—will award $20,000 prizes to individuals or teams who have developed creative, original work that addresses issues and advances in science, engineering and/or medicine for the general public. Nominations are accepted in four categories: Book; Film/ Radio/TV; Magazine/Newspaper; and Online.

To be considered for a 2017 Communication Award, the work should:
• be accessible and appeal to a broad, public audience;
• demonstrate clarity, creativity, originality, and accuracy;
• address issues and/or advances in science, engineering, and/or medicine;
• cover topics that have an impact on society; and
• have been published, broadcast, or released in 2016, in the United States and in English.

Material primarily intended for children, reference books, and textbooks are not eligible for consideration. Candidates may be individuals or teams of not more than four people. Academies’ employees are not eligible and posthumous awards are not permitted. This award is not for lifetime achievement; the work for which a candidate or team is nominated must have been published or broadcasted in 2016.

Nominations will be accepted through February 10, 2017. For more information about the process, please visit: www.keckfutures.org/awards/nominate.html.
