9 July 2012
We are delighted to announce that from almost 600 entries received, we now have the shortlist for this year's competition:
Category A (Professional scientists of postgraduate level and above)
Category B (Anyone else with a non-professional interest in science, including undergraduate students)
Penny Sarchet and Tess Shellard, winners of the 2011 prize, joined the shortlisting panel this year and have written about their experiences of being on the 'other side of the fence' for the Wellcome Trust blog.
The final winners in each category will be selected by a judging panel that includes Robin Ince (comedian), Liz Bonnin (TV presenter), Emily Wilson (the 'Guardian'), Ian Tucker (the 'Observer'), Kevin Moses (Wellcome Trust) and Mark Henderson (Wellcome Trust).
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 19 September 2012.
