Biochemical Society Science Communication Competition

Each year the Biochemical Society has looked to identify and celebrate outstanding science communicators with an annual Science Communication Competition

This is open in two categories – one for post-16 students (i.e. Key Stage 5) and another for higher education.


Entries can be submitted as a written piece of no more than 1,500 words or in a media format (e.g. video or audio) 2-5 minutes long; written and video. Entries must be bioscience themed and aimed at the general public.

The deadline is the 28th May



Criteria for competition Written Articles

Written articles should be no longer than 1,500 words. Entries will not be judged on any pictures included in the article, just the text. References must be included where appropriate.

Video and Audio

Video or audio pieces should be 2-5 minutes long. Use of sophisticated film and/or audio recording equipment is not required to enter this competition; for example, a phone camera could be used. The key points that the entries will be judged on is how well the science is presented/described and not the technical quality of the filming.
