The American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) is accepting entries for the 2009 AIBS Media Award for outstanding reporting on biological research. The deadline is 15 January 2009.

The winner receives an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, DC, to attend the awards ceremony and a prize of $1,000. Submissions will be judged by a panel of scientists and science journalists, and will be evaluated on the basis of clarity, writing/reporting skills, originality, and appeal to the general public.
