Finkel fans of science writing sponsor new prize

Australia has a new $10 000 award for long-form science journalism (2500-4500), to be part of the Eureka Prizes. The new awards will reward the author, or two authors, of a piece “judged as having expertly crafted a story from the wide world of science – including technological, engineering, mathematical or medical topics – into an engaging and accurate narrative for the public.” It is not just for employees of print and e-mastheads, specifically welcoming, self-published stories and blog copy.

The new prize is supported by the Finkel Foundation, what the charity of Chief Scientist Alan and science journalist, author and publisher Elizabeth? That’s the one.
