Project Ianos has been nominated for a Buzzie! The Buzzies, given each year by the World Congress of Science & Factual Producers, "celebrate excellence in science and factual storytelling, and recognize short-form, long-form and multi-platform science, history and natural history projects, as well as awarding projects for innovation and impact." Project Ianos has been nominated in two categories: Best Science Short Format and Best Host/ Presenter in a Science/History or Wildlife Program/Content.
"We are absolutely thrilled," says Josh Bernstein, host and executive producer for Project Ianos. "Admittedly, it's a bit unnerving to be competing against the legendary Sir David Attenborough in the 'best host' category, but we're so grateful Project Ianos is being recognized for the quality and passion we bring to STEM education. On behalf of everyone involved, we're thankful for the nomination and look forward to creating even more content for teachers and students in the months and years ahead."
The awards will be announced at Congress '21, being held Nov 29 - Dec 2, 2021.
