Become a behind the scenes reporter at the L’Oréal-UNESCO Fellowships For Women in Science UK and Ireland 2016!

You have the opportunity to be a British Science Association guest and attend the L’Oréal-UNESCO Fellowships For Women in Science UK & Ireland 2016 as a behind the scenes reporter.

The Fellowships, launched in 2007, recognise and support outstanding female postdoctoral researchers. One young person will have the opportunity to interview nominees and report from the event using social media channels on the 22 June 2016 at the Royal Society.

To showcase your reporter-style, all you have to do is find a local event (preferably with a science link), attend it and report back on the event. We’ll be picking the best one to attend the fellowships ceremony and be our behind the scenes reporter.

Your report can be entered in any format; film, photo story, news report, blog, live tweeting, Buzzfeed-style list, animation, cartoon; the list is endless!
