Every year, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awards the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry, and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. This year, the number of press accreditations to the announcements at the Academy will be very limited, but it will also be possible to follow the event online and make interviews afterwards via phone or video link.
The press conferences at which the laureates will be announced are held at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm. The press conferences are open only for media representatives covering this year’s prizes. Please note that accreditation in advance and valid press credentials are mandatory.
Because of the ongoing pandemic we can only accept a very limited number of media representatives in the Session hall. In order to make this a safe event for all present we will have social distancing measures in place. E-mail the Press Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in covering this year’s prizes on site. Please note that you will not be able to participate unless you have received a personal invitation as a response to your e-mail.
In the application you should submit
- contact details,
- media outlet,
- which press conference you would like to attend and
- if you wish to film with a camera on a stand, and/or
- interview an expert after the announcement.
If you are applying for more than one person, please note whether they have to be inside the Session Hall or can wait outside.
The press conferences will be broadcasted live at www.kva.se and www.nobelprize.org (no registration needed). If you are planning to follow the broadcast online it is possible to make arrangements in advance in order to interview an expert via phone or video link after the announcement.
