Kenneally wins 2015 Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing

Christine Kenneally has won this year’s Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science Writing for her piece ‘The past may not make you feel better’, published in her book The Invisible History of the Human Race (Black Inc.).

Keneally receives a cash prize of $7000 and will be published in the anthology The Best Australian Science Writing 2015 (ed by Bianco Nogrady, NewSouth, November), alongside the five other shortlisted authors. Runners-up were Idan Ben-Barak for ‘Why aren’t we dead yet’ and Trent Dalton for ‘Beating the odds’, who each receive $1500. 

The Bragg UNSW Press Prize for Science is presented by NewSouth Publishing for short nonfiction pieces of science writing that have been written for a general audience. Last year, the prize was awarded to Jo Chandler for her piece ‘TB and Me: A Medical Souvenir’, published in the now-defunct Global Mail.
