City Hippy brings word of a nifty essay contest run by Ecologist magazine, which I hadn’t heard of until now:
What is humanity’s worst invention?
The winning entry will receive a cheque for £2,500 and publication in the Ecologist magazine
Essay criteria: responses must be in English, up to 2,000 words. Entries will be judged on originality, critical thinking, clarity and the ability to spark debate.
Deadline for entries: 15 March 2006
Please submit entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
(A "cheque"? A "£"? What are these things they speak of?)
Go ahead and write your essays, but before you do, leave your candidates in comments.
