Entries are now open for the next edition of Best Australian Science

Guardian journalist Michael Slezak is taking the reins this year, and is
putting out a call for all the best science writing you've seen – whether
you wrote it, or just read it.

As usual, the range of eligible writing is very wide. As long as it's about
science, it will be considered. Features, book chapters, opinion
pieces...they're all welcome. Not to mention things written by
philosophers, activists, songwriters, poets or anyone else writing about
things that touch on scientific issues.

He's also particularly keen to try to include news pieces – investigative
reporting, breaking news, news analysis and current affairs features.

If you remember something you read this year that should be considered,
please send it in.

Published pieces must have appeared in print or online in 2016 or 2017 –
but not in an earlier BASW anthology – and the *closing date for
submissions is 31 March 2017*.

You can submit entries to scienceprize at newsouthpublishing.com or
michael.slezak+BASW at gmail.com.

Entries published between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017 are also eligible
for the Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing, which offers a first
prize of $7000 and two runner-up awards of $1500 each. Visit
http://www.newsouthpublishing.com/scienceprize for more details and the
Bragg Prize entry form.

This is the seventh year of this fantastic anthology, which just keeps
going from strength to strength. Please forward this as widely as possible.
