Prix Média and Media Promotion Prizes

Neue Ausrichtung des Prix Média

Nach 20 Jahren wird die Vergabe des Prix Média neu ausgerichtet. Im Vordergrund steht weiterhin der hochwertige Wissenschaftsjournalismus und die Förderung des Nachwuchses. Nähere Informationen finden Sie im zweiten Halbjahr auf unserer Website.

 
The Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences encourage dialogue between science and society. In this dialogue, journalists have an important role to play by critically analysing complex subjects and by processing them for the wider public. With various prizes the academies would like to honour and promote journalistic work.

The Prix Média is annually awarded and endowed with 5,000 Swiss Francs to honour a scientific media product. In addition, with the Prix Média Newcomer, the academies promote the work of a young journalist (aged 32 or younger) also with 5,000 Swiss Francs annually. Young journalists applying for the Prix Média are automatically considered for the Prix Média Newcomer too.

The Media Promotion Prizes are awarded to honour relevance and originality of planned scientific journalism projects. In collaboration with the magazine REPORTAGEN, the Academies support in-depth inquiries and reportages. For this purpose 22,500 Swiss Francs are available.

The award ceremony will take place at Lucerne in late autumn in collaboration with the Swiss journalist school MAZ.
