Public Engagement

Science Communication Prize

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.

In 2022, the Science Communication Prize opened in two categories: one for written pieces and one for pieces in a media format, and was open to foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate students. 

Watch and read the winning entries from 2022 below.

Stay tuned for details of the prize for 2023!

By entering this competition, I was able to help bridge complicated vaccinology concepts to the general public. This project not only allowed fun engagement with science communication, but also helped me refresh my epidemiology knowledge for my upcoming dissertation on eradicating infectious diseases.

I would like to provide new insights into this topic addressed to general public, mainly to the sufferers and their close-ones, to help them understand this issue. I hope that my article could encourage them to seek help because anorexia nervosa is a life-threatening disease.
