The Australian Museum Eureka Prizes are the country’s most comprehensive national science awards, recognising the achievements of scientists, researchers, and science communicators at all career stages.

We appreciate that preparing a submission is a significant commitment – reviewing the conditions of entry, crafting responses to the assessment criteria, approaching assessors and navigating the online entry system all take time and energy. This on-demand 45-minute information session will provide general advice to help demystify the submission process and set you on the right path when preparing your entry.
