EPSRC is offering awards of up to £1000 for descriptions of EPSRC-funded research; entrants can range from people who have not had any writing published before to professional science writers.
For information about the competition, please see: http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/cswriting/default.htm
Informatics will also offer two awards of £200 each for the best description of Informatics research (EPSRC-funded or otherwise). Informatics reserves the right to use all entries in media for which Informatics makes no charge, such as our web pages; we reserve the right not to offer a prize if there is no entry we want to use on our web pages.
We encourage you to enter the EPSRC contest, and to get a second bite at the cherry by submitting your work for the Informatics web site as well.
To enter the Informatics competition, please copy your entry to Diana.Sisu@inf.ed.ac.uk .
The deadline for entries is 31st January 2007.
