THE BRAGG UNSW PRESS PRIZE FOR SCIENCE WRITING 2015

Media release

Entries are open for the 2015 Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing. Shortlisted entries are published in The Best Australian Science Writing 2015 anthology. Science writing from all corners and dimensions of science will be considered; from the big picture to the intimately personal; from scientists and non-scientists; from poetry to essays, and everything in between.

It often starts with a single thread: a throwaway line in an interview, an aside in an article, a statistic buried in a report, or a thought that comes to you in the wee hours and refuses to be silenced. A science writer follows that thread to reveal the intricate warp and weft that make up every good science story. Perhaps the story is a simple, joyous journey of discovery, but it could equally be a far more complex account of intrigue, scandal, triumph and failure.

Editor of the 2015 anthology, Bianca Nogrady, is looking for news stories, features, blogs, opinion pieces, poems, short stories, book chapters and excerpts, published since 1 January 2014. Soon-to-be published works will also be considered for the book. Maximum length is 7000 words, but brevity is also appreciated.

Entries published between 1 April 2014 and 31 March 2015 are eligible for Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing, which offers a first prize of $7000 and two runner-up prizes of $1500 each.

Please send your submissions or any queries to bianca+BASW@biancanogrady.com by 31 March 2015, or visit www.newsouthpublishing.com/scienceprize for more details and the Bragg Prize entry form.
