The David Allen Prize for exceptional achievement in astronomy communication is now open for nominations. Nominations will close on Friday 27th March.

Nomination guidelines can be found at: http://asa.astronomy.org.au/DAP/index.html

Please distribute this information widely. The prize is open to all astronomy communicators and the scope of the activity is broad.  However, the outreach activity must have been undertaken within Australia.

The David Allen Prize is awarded to an individual, group or institution that actively connects with the public to communicate astronomical themes in an engaging and informative way. The activity should reach a broad range of audiences. It must be highly prominent and interesting, while maintaining a strong level of scientific integrity.
The scope of the activity can be quite broad such as public presentations, popular writing, sustained media and outreach events, on-line activities and/or any innovative and creative activity that achieves astronomy outreach.
The activity must have been undertaken in Australia, by an Australian citizen or permanent resident or an Australian institution, and have been published, performed or have occurred after 27 March 2012. Previous winners of the David Allen Prize are ineligible for nomination.
