Aviation Week & Space Technology Distinguished Service Award

FSF Cecil A. Brownlow Publication Award

First presented in 1968 as the FSF Publication Award, the award was renamed in 1988 in memory of Cecil A. Brownlow, a veteran newspaper, wire service and magazine journalist who was the FSF editor of publications from 1981 until shortly before his death in 1988 at age 61.

The award recognizes significant contributions by journalists to aviation safety awareness. Candidates for the prestigious award may be individuals, publications or organizations. Nominations may be for long-term achievement or for outstanding articles, books or works in electronic media published or broadcast in a 12-month period.

The recipient of the award, sponsored by IHS, will receive $1,000; a hand-lettered citation; and transportation to the 2015 Aerospace Media Dinner, the award venue.

Nominations of individuals or organizations, including a detailed description (400 words or fewer) of the nominee’s achievements, may be made using the online nomination form (link below) or sent to Frank Jackman, director of publications and editor-in-chief AeroSafety World magazine, Flight Safety Foundation, 801 N. Fairfax Street, Suite 400, Alexandria, VA 22314-1774 USA. Nominations  must be accompanied by representative hard-copy, CD or DVD samples of the nominee’s work whenever possible, sent to the address above. Electronic submissions may be sent to jackman@flightsafety.org and must include the nomination form and a direct link or PDF of the nominee's work being considered. An independent board will consider the nominations that in its judgment meet the award criteria.

The nominating deadline is April 24, 2015. The award will be presented at the 2015 Aerospace Media Dinner, incorporating the 2015 Aerospace Media Awards, which will take place in Paris on June 14, 2015, the eve of the Paris Air Show.
