The Biophilia Award for Environmental Communication recognises the work of professionals and organisations in any country that have contributed exceptionally to improving public understanding and awareness of ecological issues, through the dissemination of scientific knowledge and by opening up new perspectives on nature from any disciplinary angle.
The award, which comes with a cash prize of 100,000 euros, recognises contributions in any aspect of environmental communication, especially in the areas of biodiversity conservation and climate change, characterised by a particularly innovative approach.
These contributions may encompass a wide spectrum of formats, styles, and channels, including articles, monographs, multimedia materials and books; the preparation, editing and presentation of reports and documentaries; the design and curatorship of exhibitions; and projects in any medium (press, radio, television, film, documentary or Internet).
They should preferably, though not exclusively, be directed at a global audience, and those with a more limited focus (regional or national) should, in any case, have achieved a broad impact. Entries are open to communication activities concluded before 31 December, 2020.
