Deadline Extended: ACHEMA Media Award 2021 - Looking for journalistic coverage of science and technology

The ACHEMA Media Award is awarded to authors of editorial contributions which make topics from science and technology accessible for a broader public. Due to the postponement of ACHEMA, the submission deadline is extended to September 30, 2021. The main prize is endowed with 10,000 €.

The ACHEMA Media Prize will be awarded during ACHEMA 2022. In view of the current situation, this global leading show for processes and equipment for the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries has been moved to April 4-8, 2022 in Frankfurt am Main / Germany. “As the award ceremony will take place in April 2022, we have decided to adjust the submission deadline accordingly," explains Prof. Dr. Kurt Wagemann, Executive Director of DECHEMA. “We already received a large number of submissions, but this will allow us to consider more recent publications as well." The ACHEMA Media Award is open to all media genres, whether print, television, radio or online media. In the past, submissions of all categories have been honored.

Informative and well-researched journalistic articles are crucial for presenting science and technology to society in a way that is transparent and can be experienced in everyday life. DECHEMA Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V., which has been awarding the prize every three years since 1997, is aware of this fact.

The ACHEMA Media Prize focuses on chemistry, process engineering and biotechnology, but also on related topics such as environmental technology. For the first time three contributions will be awarded: The main prize is endowed with 10,000 euros. Second place is worth 5,000 euros, and the author of the third-place entry receives 3,000 euros. The ACHEMA Media Prize will be awarded during ACHEMA.

Submissions from print media, television, radio or online media (as text, videocast or podcast etc.) can be submitted until September 30, 2021. They should have been published between January 1, 2018 and September 30, 2021. The ACHEMA Media Prize is awarded by the DECHEMA Executive Board on the recommendation of a jury consisting of representatives from industry, universities and the media.
