April 2009 Archives


The photos from the glittering Awards event at the Royal Institution are up: see portraits of the nominees and winners, the ceremony itself, and a glimpse behind-the-scenes of us setting up during the morning.

We’ll be scurrying around trying to caption and label as many of the stills as we can, but do jump in and leave notes and comments if you like. You should also be able to download full-size versions of each photograph by clicking the ‘All sizes’ button that appears above the image when you click through to its page.


Here’s the list of category winners for the Planet SciCast Awards 2009, as announced at the ceremony in London on Monday. I’m scrambling to upload the last few films, so you’ll see the links update shortly. After that, we’ve oodles of photos of the event to publish, then hopefully a bit of a video report to follow.

Congratulations to all the winners, and the other nominees who made it to the final stage and gave them such tough competition. It was lovely to see so many of you at the Royal Institution; I hope you had a fantastic day.
