Science writing contest open [UK]
U.K. writers interested in science can submit articles to a contest.
The Wellcome Trust Science Writing Prize seeks articles that can bring a scientific idea to life, with winning entries receiving publication in The Guardian or The Observer and a UK₤1,000 (about $1590) prize.
The contest features two categories - postgraduate professional scientists or anyone else with a non-professional interest in science, including undergraduate students. Professional journalists and authors who already write for money are not eligible.
The top 30 shortlisted entrants will also be invited to attend a science writing workshop at The Guardian offices in September 2012.
Submit articles by April 25. For more information, click here.
