The Josh Award is an award established to recognise and support up-and-coming talent in science communication, nurture development in the field (with the support of BIG – the skills sharing network for people involved in the communication of STEM) and support the involvement in the Manchester Science Festival.
The award is open to science communication practitioners who can be full-time, part-time or practising science communication through various aspects of their jobs, e.g. as a researcher at a University. We welcome applications from individuals and groups. The award is open to anyone involved in science communication in the UK (and is a UK resident).
