Skeptics Award for Critical Thinking in Journalism

Australian Skeptics Inc is adding to its portfolio of annual awards with one for the best piece of skeptical journalism.

The award is named for the late Barry Williams, past president and executive officer of ASI who was a regular on Australian media. The Barry Williams Award for Skeptical Journalism will recognise the best piece of journalism (in any medium) that takes a critical and skeptical approach to a topic that falls within our remit, which is the scientific investigation of pseudoscience and the paranormal.
