The Wellcome Trust Science Writing Prize 2012:
Wellcome Trust, in association with the 'Guardian' and the 'Observer', have launched the second year of their Science Writing Prize. They're looking for short articles (800 words) that address any area of science and would be suitable for publication in the 'Guardian' or the 'Observer' in print and online. You must demonstrate that you have thought about and understood your audience and can bring a scientific idea to life. The judges are looking for originality, bright ideas and a distinctive writing style. Your 800-word article should show a passion for science and encourage the general public to consider, question and debate the key issues in science and society. You can enter in either of two categories, with the winner of each receiving a prize: (a) professional scientists of postgraduate level and above or (b) anyone else with a non-professional interest in science, including undergraduate students. The winning articles from each category will be published in the 'Guardian' or the 'Observer', and winners will also receive a £1000 (GBP) cash prize. Visit their website for more information. The deadline for entries is 25 April 2012.
