About Sense About Science John Maddox Prize
Nominations for the John Maddox Prize are now open until close on 14 June.

The John Maddox Prize recognises the work of an individual to promote sound science and evidence on a matter of public interest, facing difficulty or hostility in doing so. The prize advocates for the value of an open and honest environment for societies to discuss scientific evidence.

 

An initiative of the charity Sense about Science and the scientific journal Nature and now in its tenth year, the John Maddox Prize is awarded to one or two people each year for standing up for sound science in public. An additional award is also made to someone who in the opinion of the judges is at an early stage of their career.

 

Nominations illustrate a wide variety of circumstances faced by researchers and communicators around the world, and judges consider these in the round. They also consider:

 

*  The significance of an individual’s effort to advance the discussion of sound science in the public sphere.

*  The nature of the challenge(s) faced by the individual, whether they persevered and whether those challenges were beyond what would be expected in their position.
*  How well they placed the evidence in the wider debate and engaged others.

 

Sir John Maddox, whose name this prize commemorates, was a passionate and tireless champion and defender of science, engaging with difficult debates and inspiring others to do the same. As a writer and editor, he changed attitudes and perceptions, and strove for better understanding and appreciation of science throughout his long working life.

 

The John Maddox Prize awards evening is hosted at Wellcome Collection, London in November. Winners receive £3000 (winners in public office usually waive this).

 

Candidates for the John Maddox Prize must be nominated.

 

This is a global prize: people from any country and in any field can be nominated.

 

The winner is chosen by a judging panel, not by Sense about Science or Nature.
