It's down to a brilliant, select few, with the announcement of the finalists for the 2010 Australian Museum Eureka Prizes.

The shortlist of scientific excellence recognises the year's most innovative and influential scientists, together with the country's top science communicators and teachers. In 2010, projects making the final cut range from the mathematics of defence, to the benefits of genetic junk and the fun to be found in test tubes. To find out who is in the running to win a Eureka Prize go to www.australianmuseum.net.au/eureka/enter<http://www.australianmuseum.net.au/eureka/enter>

The finalists' announcement coincides with the opening of voting in the People's Choice Award. The six finalists will be profiled on ABC TV's Catalyst on 29 July, and from 22 July to 15 August, anyone can cast their vote for the scientist of their choice. Who will you choose: The chicken whisperers? The geologist with a new theory of mountain-making? Or one of the other four contenders? Information about all of the People's Choice Award finalists and how to vote is at: www.australianmuseum.net.au/eureka/vote<http://www.australianmuseum.net.au/eureka/vote>.

The People's Choice Award and all the winners of the 2010 Eureka Prizes will be revealed on 17 August at a star-studded gathering of the country's top researchers, innovators and thinkers at the Randwick Pavilion at Sydney's Royal Randwick Racecourse.
