International Natural Product Science Taskforce is organizing a science blogger contest. Each blog post for participation in the INPST 2018 Science Communication Award needs to have a minimum of 1000 words and at least one image (photo, scheme, or other graphical representation), and needs to be send as a Word file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The submitted blog posts need to be focused on a life sciences-related topic, and to be written in easily understandable (layman’s) terms. Participation with more than one blog posts is allowed. Blogs with more than one authors are allowed (if a blog post with several authors is the winner, the award will be divided to equal parts among the participating authors).Example of a published blog can be viewed here.
The INPST 2018 Science Communication Award will be given in Gold (2000 USD), Silver (1000 USD), and Bronze (500 USD) to the authors of the three best blog posts that will be published on the INPST website in 2018.
In addition to the monetary Awards, each of the three winners will be honored with a Certificate (in Gold/Silver/Bronze) issued by the distinguished Evaluation Committee. Each blog post published on the INPST website will confer an exceptional scientific and public visibility to both each participating author and to the covered topic (which could be a great chance to promote a scientific topic or research of particular personal interest).
The winners will be selected based on the quality of the writing and on
the provoked public interest (e.g., reflected in parameters such as the number of
page views and the number of sharing on the social media). The winners will be
announced in March 2019.
Submission Deadline: December 31, 2018.
