Eureka Prizes

Eureka Prizes

The Australian Museum Eureka Prizes are annual Australian science prizes awarded in the fields of scientific research & innovation, science leadership, science communication & journalism and school science. There is also a People's Choice Award which is decided by popular public vote.

The finalists are announced each July and winners are announced at a Gala Dinner in August. The awards are presented by the Australian Museum in cooperation with the Australian and New South Wales governments and a range of organisations, companies and individuals.



The People's Choice Award[1] is given to one of six scientists chosen through an online vote. The remaining awards are decided upon by a panel of judges. The number and names of the awards have changed since they began in 1990; they are presented in four broad categories:
