Science: [So what? So everything] offers the chance win Canon photography equipment worth £1,150
February 25, 2010: The Science: [So what? So everything] campaign is calling on the UK public to recognise the impact that science has on our lives, by launching the living science competition. This nationwide competition aims to find the nation’s most inspiring health stories to recognise the life-changing impact of medical science. There are £1,500 worth of photographic prizes up for grabs and the chance to become the face of living science.
The Science: [So what? So everything] campaign is looking for personal photographs and accompanying story, which illustrate how science has benefitted your health, or that of someone close to you. Whether by enabling us to achieve something that previously would have been impossible, saving a life, or helping a loved one on their journey back to health, innovations in healthcare touch and benefit millions of people every day.
The winner’s prize includes: Canon digital SLR EOS 500D, with 18-55 IS lens and EF-S55 250 IS lens, with a RRP of £1,149.95, and a photography course. The winner of the living science competition will also have the chance to share their story with the nation, helping to highlight the UK science research and treatments that changed their life for the better. Two runners up will be awarded photography courses from Experience Seminars worth up to £149, who provide training for aspiring photographers of all levels.
GMTV weathergirl and ambassador for the Science: [So what? So everything] campaign, Clare Nasir said:
“Often people don’t realise the huge role that science plays in all of our lives, especially in healthcare, where I am sure that nearly everybody knows someone, or has themselves experienced the wonders of healthcare science. The living science competition is about saying thank you to the scientists, research and treatments that have made the amazing possible for so many people.
“I would urge people to get involved in the living science competition, sharing their stories of how science has changed their lives for the better, and inspiring others to think about the importance of UK science. The photograph which shows what science means to me is a scan of my baby girl. Without the intervention of science my husband and I would never have been able to conceive her. Even after the sleepless nights and endless nappy changes, we’re thankful to the science that made a family possible for us.
Launching the competition Science Minister Lord Drayson said: “We're often moved by images of medical science in action, from ultrasounds of unborn babies to wounded soldiers learning to walk again. I hope this competition spurs the UK public to share photographs showing what science means to them."
