Ayrton Prize

The British Society for the History of Science is delighted to announce the
launch of a new prize for outstanding web projects and digital engagement in
the history of science, technology and medicine (HSTM). The prize name was
chosen by members of the BSHS from a shortlist to recognize the major
contributions of Hertha Ayrton (1854-1923) to numerous scientific fields in
the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. We welcome applications
for the inaugural Ayrton Prize, to be awarded to the best history of science
web project of the past 2 years.

The Outreach and Education Committee will produce a shortlist which will
then be open for vote to members of the BSHS. The winning project will form
the centrepiece of a special issue of the BSHS magazine, Viewpoint,
dedicated to HSTM and the digital, which will appear in February 2016. We
will also feature all the shortlisted entries on the BSHS website.

For more details, including judging criteria and an entry form, please visit
the BSHS website: http://www.bshs.org.uk/ayrton-prize.

Entries close at 4pm on 21 September 2015.
