Do you know any early-career researchers who have peer-reviewed results, a discovery, or an invention that has received little or no media attention?

Please nominate them for Fresh Science<http://freshscience.org.au/>, a national competition that helps early-career researchers find, and then share, their stories of discovery.

Scientists get a day of media training and the chance to share their work with the media and general public.

Fresh Science is looking for:

*        early-career researchers (from honours students to no more than five years post-PhD)

*        a peer-reviewed discovery that has had little or no media coverage

*        some ability to present ideas in everyday English.

If you'd like to share our flyer calling for nominations, you can download it as  a PDF<http://freshscience.org.au/wp-content/uploads/FreshScience2018Poster.pdf> or a jpeg<http://freshscience.org.au/wp-content/uploads/FreshScience2018Poster.jpg> or share the call on social media using #FreshSci

Nominations close midnight on Tuesday 24 April.

The training and events in QLD will be held on 20th and 23rd July.

What's involved?

In each state, we will select the top ten applicants. If selected, you will get:

  *   A day of media training where you will: hear from working journalists about what makes science news for them; find the story in your research with guidance from two experienced science communicators; and practice being interviewed in front of camera and on radio.
  *   A short profile about your work written in a media-friendly way, published online and via social media.
  *   The chance to step on stage and present your science to a friendly audience down at the museum.
  *   The winner's story will be written up as a press release and issued to the media.
