Eurekas in focus
Wednesday, March 28, 2012
Close to two hundred Eureka winners, judges, finalists and friends, fondly referred to as Eureka Ambassadors, gathered to hear the annual Eureka Moments Address.
This year's Address was delivered by Jason Edwards, winner of the 2011 New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography.
Jason reflected on life as a photographer and highlighted the importance of the Eureka Prizes in recognising the role of science communicators in our community.
'Receiving the call that I was a finalist in the Eureka Prizes was an immense honour in and of itself,' said Jason.
'To me it represented an acknowledgement by the scientific community that my work had meaning on some level; that someone somewhere thought I was doing it right at some point in time.'
Help us reward science by entering or nominating for one of the 18 prizes on offer in 2012.
The Eureka Ambassadors Evening marks the official launch of the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes program. Each year we invite a Eureka winner to present the Eureka Moments Address, inspiring Eureka Ambassadors to promote, nominate or enter the Eureka Prizes. See past Eureka Moments Addresses here.
