Each year the Biochemical Society has looked to identify and celebrate outstanding science communicators with an annual Science Communication Competition. In 2020, to mark the 10th anniversary of this scheme, the Biochemical Society is inaugurating the Biochemical Society Science Communication Prize. This is open in two categories – one for post-16 students (i.e. Key Stage 5) and another for higher education students (i.e. undergraduate and postgraduate) – and is your opportunity to showcase your SciComm talents.

Entries can be submitted as a written piece of no more than 1,500 words or in a media format (e.g. video or audio) 2-5 minutes long; written and video. Entries must be bioscience themed and aimed at the general public.

The winning entries will be published in the Society’s magazine, The Biochemist, and on the Society’s website.

Applications for the 2020 Biochemical Society Science Communication Prize are now open and will close on 28 May 2020.
