Enter our 2020 writing competition for early-career statisticians

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in News

If you are an early-career researcher, now is your chance to write for the RSS flagship statistics magazine Significance, which features stories about statistics and data science, and what data can tell us about the world we live in.

Our 2020 writing competition, jointly organised with the Young Statisticians Section of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), is now open for entries.

The competition is for two categories of people: students currently studying for a first degree, Master’s or PhD in statistics or related subjects, and graduates whose last qualification in statistics or related subjects (whether first degree, Master’s or PhD) was not more than five years ago.

The rules of entry are simple: send us your best statistical writing in the form of a magazine article (1,500 to 2,500 words) on any subject you like, and the winning entry will be published in our October 2020 issue.

The deadline for entries is 29 May 2020.

Not sure what to write about? Read about last year's winner for some examples.

More information, including competition rules and guidelines, as well as an entry form and official poster, is available on our web page.
