Can You Produce Winning Words?

As in many previous Challenger Society Conferences, a prize will be awarded for the best report of the meeting, which will be published in Ocean Challenge. The report should be your personal impression of the meeting – science and social aspects, highlights and lowlights – rather than a blow-by-blow report. The emphasis should be on lively writing and good communication. Entries should be sent to the Editor at AngelaMColling@gmail.com within three weeks of the end of the conference, and be about 1000 words long. The writer of the best report will receive a cheque for £75.
