7 Oct 2012 Brussels - The hunt for the Higgs boson was undoubtedly the Grid computing story of 2012. Help now find the next big thing for 2013 and win 500 euro worth of dream gadgets. The European Grid Infrastructure is announcing the EGI Writing Prize 2013 in association with iSGTW.

The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) invites researchers and science writers from all over the world to send engaging articles about practical applications of Grid computing in science. The competition is split into two categories:

2. Writers: This category includes everyone with an interest in science writing - bloggers, freelancers, journalists; science communication students.

The prize for each category is 500 euro worth of electronic gadgets of your choice. You pick the gadgets, EGI picks up the bill. You will also get your article published on EGI's website and newsletter and on iSGTW - a weekly on-line magazine specialised in e-Science. The winners will also receive a free ticket to the EGI Community Forum in Manchester, where the award ceremony will be held.
