Each year, we look to identify and celebrate outstanding science communicators with an annual Science Communication Prize. We invite students to submit a written or media entry, which discusses a topic in the biosciences, aimed at the general public.
The Science Communication Prize welcomes entries in two categories: one for written pieces and one for pieces in a media format (e.g. video or audio).
Entries must be bioscience themed and aimed at the general public, with entries welcomed from two educational stage groups:
- A-level/T-level/BTEC National/Scottish Highers or equivalent students.
- BTEC Higher National, foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate students.
Entrants who have graduated in the same year in which their entry is made can still enter and the educational stage of entrants will be taken into consideration when judging submissions (see full entry criteria below).
Winners are selected for both categories (written and media), with prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each educational group.
Winning entries in the written category will be published in the Society’s magazine, The Biochemist, and both written and media entries will be published on the Society’s website.
Take a look at last year's winners below for inspiration!
Please note: winning entrants who are under 18 must have consent from a parent or guardian for their work to be published.
