AGU Seeks Nominations for Sullivan and Perlman Journalism Awards
* The Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism – Features recognizes excellence in reporting, generally produced with deadlines of longer than one week, that explains the background of scientific discoveries or principles.
It is named for Walter Sullivan of The New York Times, first recipient of the award.
* The David Perlman Award for Excellence in Science Journalism – News recognizes excellence in reporting news of scientific advances, generally produced under deadline pressure of one week or less. It is named for David Perlman, Science Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and 1997 winner of the AGU Award for Sustained Achievement in Science Journalism.
The awards consist of a plaque and a $2,000 stipend, to be presented at an AGU meeting in 2009.
