Communicating to the public everything that is involved in the art and science of conservation has always been a skill in itself. We believe that promoting public understanding, storytelling and appreciation of conservation are becoming increasingly important ways to recognise, inspire, and contextualise the work of our profession. Projects that reach diverse and underrepresented audiences are particularly welcomed as well as initiatives that increase social impact and inspire creative engagement.

Open to all formats as well as small projects and those from larger institutions. Many of our past winners have blended in-person and offline outreach but we also welcome applications from all-virtual projects as well. We invite you to nominate projects run by you or your institution - or pass this information along to those whose work you have admired.

The award consists of a certificate and a prize of £2500, which will be presented online at the IIC Congress in Lima.

Further details on how to submit a nomination can be found here.

Deadline for Nominations: 10 May 2024
