Now in its 26th year, the Evert Clark/Seth Payne Award was created to recognize the contributions to journalism of both Ev Clark and Seth Payne.
The award is intended to encourage young science writers by recognizing outstanding reporting and writing in any field of science. The 2015 winner will receive $1,000 and expenses to attend ScienceWriters2015, which combines the annual National Association of Science Writers workshops and CASW's New Horizons in Science briefings.
The award is given in memory of Ev Clark, a veteran journalist at Business Week, The New York Times and Newsweek, and Seth Payne, his long-time friend and colleague at Business Week and a founder of the award. It is designed to carry on the work of both men, who offered friendship and advice to generations of young journalists.
