World Congress of Science and Factual Producers

I’m super excited because I’ve just found out that I’ve won a place in the Wellcome Trust Mentoring Program for Emerging Talent, to attend the World Congress of Science and Factual Producers in Melbourne in a couple of weeks.

As well as covering all costs associated with the congress, the prize means I will also be mentored by a senior producer, be introduced at the opening plenary of the congress, have one-on-one meetings with commissioning editors and go to an opening day VIP session.

As you may have noticed, my freelance media work has been less frequent of late as academia has consumed me, so this opportunity could not have come at a better time. I think it may  influence what I choose to do next year, when my ANU research is due to finish.

So a huge thanks to the Wellcome Trust and the congress organisers and other sponsors of the conference; I anticipate future work in my portfolio will be shaped by this experience.

I need to get some new business cards sorted now!
