Award Info


About the Award

This award is the product of the merger of two previous SPSP awards; the Media Achievement Award, and the Media Prize. This merger took place in 2015 when it was approved by the board to combine the two previous media awards into one. 

The Media Award for Excellence in Science Journalism honors a member of the media for excellence in coverage of the personality and social psychology field. Recipients may be recognized for a particular piece of media coverage published in 2015 or for a distinguished record of disseminating knowledge of the field to the general public.

The recipient will receive a $500 honorarium and accompanying plaque which are presented at the Awards Ceremony held at the SPSP Annual Convention. The winner also receives complimentary convention registration and three night hotel stay.
