Nomination for the 2021 John Maddox Prize for Standing up for Science now open -

The John Maddox Prize 2021, is now accepting nominations of individuals who have played an important role in promoting sound science on a matter of public interest, facing difficulty or hostility in doing so. Now in its tenth year, The John Maddox Prize is a joint initiative between the charity Sense about Science and the journal Nature, published by Springer Nature. The prize advocates for the value of an open and honest environment for societies to discuss scientific evidence. Each year one or two winners are selected by an independent judging panel. An additional award is also made to someone who is at an early stage of their career.

This prize commemorates Sir John Maddox, who was a passionate and tireless communicator, a defender of science, and a writer and editor at Nature for 22 years. Sir John engaged with difficult debates and encouraged others to do the same. The winner of the John Maddox Prize receives £3000, and the award is presented at a reception hosted at Wellcome Collection later in the year.

Information about the nomination criteria and judgement process is available here.
