Enlightener Prize

The Enlightner Prize (Prosvetitel Prize in Russian) was established in 2008 by Dr Zimin and is awarded annually to the best non-fiction popular science book written in Russian.

The Enlightener means the person who brings knowledge to everyone. So the purpose of the Prize is to motivate Russian-speaking scientists and science journalists writing about the latest discoveries and research. More than 150 books are submitted to the competition every year. The organizing committee selects a long list of 25 works in two categories: humanities and natural and exact sciences. Then, an independent jury selects a short list of eight books.
