The LSA is accepting nominations for its Linguistics Journalism Award, which honors the journalist whose work best represents linguistics during the 12-month consideration period indicated in the call for nominations.  The award will be based on a single news story or body of work that reflects accuracy and timeliness as regards the material but is also appealing to nonspecialist audiences. Nominations may be submitted here for awards to be presented at the LSA’s 2019 Annual Meeting in New York.

Works nominated for this award must have appeared between June 1, 2017 and May 31, 2018. The winner will be provided with transportation, housing, and a per diem and will be recognized at the Awards Ceremony. Selection of the award recipient will be made by a committee consisting of 2-3 members of the LSA Public Relations Committee (PRC) and the Executive Committee liaison to the PRC.

More information about the award, including current and past winners, is available here.
