You are invited to enter the Marcus Pembrey BioNews Writing Prize

To celebrate the 25th Birthday of BioNews PET is delighted to announce the inaugural Marcus Pembrey BioNews Writing Prize, named after one of the charity’s founding trustees and patrons.

If you enjoy writing about complex subjects with accuracy and clarity and want to share your opinion on either the science, ethics, or law behind the big developments in the fields of fertility and genomics, then this competition is for you. We would like you to write a 1000-word comment piece on what you consider to be the most impactful scientific or legal development in fertility, genomics, or embryo research in the last 25 years.

Three prizes will be awarded: First prize £750, second prize £500 and third prize £250. The first prize winner will also be given the opportunity to have 3 pieces of work published in BioNews with coaching from the experienced team of editors.

Full details of how to enter, the competition rules, tips for writing and the judging process can all be found on our website:

Closing date is 30 June 2024. Good luck from the team at PET
