2019 Fresh Science Nominations Now Open

Are you an Early Career Researcher (ECR) and want the world to know about your discoveries? What’s the story behind your research and how can you tell it in a compelling way? Fresh Science is a national competition designed to help you craft a compelling story to tell the community and media.


The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and helps you become a spokesperson for science. If selected you’ll take part in:

  • a one day media and communication training course where you’ll meet and chat with journalists from TV, newspaper and radio, including doing some practice interviews
  • a one day professional development program where you’ll met people from business and government; learn how to pitch and make a pitch; write a short profile and social media posts with the guidance of two professional science communicators
  • attend an evening event at the local pub where you get to practice presenting your results in an understandable and fun way


As part of Fresh Science they will publish a short, media-ready profile on you and promote via social media channels. See previous stories


If you’re an ECR currently working in Australia why not apply now?
