Science Communication Awards 2013
Deadline for the Society of Biology Science Communication Awards 2013 is midnight on 31 May 2013
The Awards are intended to reward outreach work carried out by young scientists and established researchers to inform, enthuse and engage the public.
The judges are looking for a commitment to outreach over a period of time and this could involve a wide range of activities, from talks and written articles to hands-on demonstrations or art displays. The audiences can vary from school children to patients to the general public, but should not include a scientific audience above school level.
previous Society of Biology Science Communication Award winners are not eligible to enter again.
The competition is open to bioscience researchers from UK universities and institutes and there are two categories of award:
New Researcher Prize: £750
The New Researcher Award is open to bioscience researchers currently reading for a Masters/PhD or in the first year of a post-doctoral position.
Established Researcher Prize: £1500
The Established Researcher Award is open to bioscience researchers who are beyond the first stages of their research career, as defined in the New Researcher category. The Society is looking for researchers who communicate their own work well, and who represent their own field strongly in the science communication world. Professional science communicators, paid for science communication work beyond their role as a scientist, are not eligible to apply.
