Call for entries: Jackson Hole Science Media Awards

From a press release:

Science plays a profound role in our daily lives in ways that we can scarcely imagine, from the infinitesimal to the infinite. This year, to recognize media that best depicts the wonders of science to a broad audience, we are delighted to announce the inaugural Jackson Hole Science Media Awards

Encouraging the development of compelling media that best translate the complexities of science to the public, the Awards will provide a forum to connect influential media professionals with leading scientists from around the world, and showcase finalists and award winners at the 2012 Symposium as well as other public and industry events. 

With 17 award categories for competition as well as Best of Festival and Special Jury awards, eligible programs may be of any length, may originate in any format (including animation) and be produced for theatrical, television broadcast, internet, institutional or public media distribution. Submissions must be completed between June 1, 2010 & May 31, 2012, but need not have been broadcast or publicly exhibited. 
The deadline for submission is June 1, 2012. All submissions will be uploaded electronically to a secure and protected website to keep the competition as environmentally friendly as possible, and ensure the broadest participation of international jurors during the preliminary judging phase.
