Designing Darwin contest


Anticipating the bicentennial of Charles Darwin's birth and the sesquicentennial of the publication of the Origin of Species, the Outreach and Education Committee of the British Society for the History of Science is conducting a prize competition for original designs illustrating the significance of these anniversaries. Entries may take the form of posters, illustrated essays, or screensavers. There are three age categories for entrants -- 11-14, 15-18, and 19+ -- with a prize of £100 to be awarded in each category. People around the world, not just in the United Kingdom, are welcome to submit entries. Entries are due by e-mail by May 26, 2008.
