Dear ASCers,


The Australian Science Communicators are proud to announce that the winner
of the Australian Science Communicators Unsung Hero Award of Science
Communication for 2012 is Mr Guy Nolch, editor and publisher of Australasian


The judging panel selected Guy as the standout choice from a number of
worthy nominees. The judges mentioned Guy's many notable achievements and

*	his long period of distinguished science publishing (20 years
publishing Australasian Science); 
*	training and mentoring science communicators; 
*	making scientists' work accessible to and understood by the public; 
*	dealing with controversial issues;
*	his major contributions to the discussion of science policy and
scientific issues in Australia; 
*	and for the fostering of good science journalism in Australia and
for promotion of leading Australian scientists and their research.


The ASC created this award to honour a person or group who exemplify science
communication, who have not yet received significant recognition for their
contribution to science and its promotion, and for work done in Australia
over a considerable or prolonged time. 


This is the first time the ASC has made this national award. In the past the
ASC acknowledged unsung Australian scientists, but now feel that it is time
to put into the spotlight those who communicate the science. 


Guy joined the AGM meeting via a video Skype hook-up for the announcement
and our accolades. Guy said he was humbled at winning the award. His
humility was appropriately accompanied by his ear-to-ear grin. 


Guy has been making his living as a science communicator for many years and
as such he is a beacon to us all. Next year the ASC will once again shine
its own light on another previously unsung science communicator.
