COSMOS is a magazine of ideas, science society and the future.
Australia’s #1 science media brand, COSMOS is a literary science magazine with a global following. It reaches 600,000 people every month, and its highly-regarded education resources are used in 70% of Australian high schools. The company behind the magazine, Cosmos Media, also produces custom media products – such as books, posters, websites and iPad apps – for a range of government, industry and academic clients.
COSMOS is internationally respected for its literary writing, excellence in design and engaging breadth of content. It’s the winner of 47 awards, including Australia’s Magazine of the Year trophy in both 2009 and 2006, and twice the Editor of the Year accolade, at the annual Publishers Australia Excellence Awards. COSMOS has also won the American Institute of Physics Science Writing Award, the Reuters/IUCN Award for Excellence in Environmental Journalism, the City of Sydney Lord Mayor’s Sustainability Award, an Earth

COSMOS is the brainchild of Wilson da Silva, a former ABC TV science reporter and past president of the World Federation of Science Journalists. It is backed by an Editorial Advisory Board that includes Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, ABC Radio’s Robyn Williams, and is chaired by Dr Alan Finkel, the neuroscientist and philanthropist who is the Chancellor of Monash University in Melbourne.
COSMOS is produced by Cosmos Media Pty Ltd, a boutique publishing house in Sydney that has twice been named Best Publisher at the annual Publishers Australia Excellence Awards.
