Voices of Tomorrow

In its Voices of Tomorrow feature, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists invites rising experts to submit essays, opinion pieces, and multimedia presentations addressing at least one of the Bulletin's core issues: nuclear risk, climate change, and threats from disruptive technologies. Voices of Tomorrow authors and multimedia artists are eligible for the Leonard M. Rieser Award. To submit an entry, please see our guidelines.

The recipient of the Rieser Award receives $1,000 and a subscription to the Bulletin’s bi-monthly journal.


The Bulletin is delighted to collaborate with Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications, one of the premier journalism programs in the world. Through this initiative, we  partner with students in Medill’s graduate journalism Health, Environment and Science specialization and Medill on the Hill, the school’s program in Washington, D.C., to provide an outlet for aspiring journalists focused on the Bulletin’s coverage areas of nuclear weapons, climate change, and disruptive technologies.
