Tech in Media is an all-Russian journalism contest held by RVC since 2010. Nobel Prize winner Sir Richard Roberts has headed the Tech in Media Board of Trustees since 2014. The format of the contest is federal selection and expert evaluation of the best journalistic works, including articles and programs on radio and television, in socio-political and business media, projects, and blogs of popular science and technology topics. Tech in Media is designed to encourage and stimulate the activities of journalists and the media engaged in covering innovative processes in Russia. (http://tech-in-media.ru/)
