Clear, concise communication is essential to make your science accessible. The Antibody Society is offering you a chance to grow this skill through a Science Writing Competition. For examples, view winning essays from the 2021 Science Writing Competition.
We invite you to submit an essay of 1200 – 1500 words on a topic related to antibody research. Feel free to use an eye-catching self-generated high-resolution graphic (jpg format) to help make your main point. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Fc effector function and neutralization
Adaptive immune receptor repertoires
The winning essays are featured on The Antibody Society’s website and winners receive a $400 cash prize.
Two winners (1 student, 1 post-doc) will be selected by our panel of judges based on the originality, creativity, clarity, and structure of their essays.
Send your essay to firstname.lastname@example.org as a Word document. The first 30 submissions will be considered for the competition. Please include your contact details and whether you are a student or post-doc in your email.
Submission deadline: May 1, 2022
Essays should be written for a general reader. Guidance on effective scientific writing can be found here and here.
