The Sir Arthur Clarke Awards
This is a reminder that there is still a little time to submit nominations for the Sir Arthur Clarke Awards – the Space Oscars:
Hollywood has the Oscars® - We have the Arthurs! Your chance to help recognise UK space activity.
Each year, there are various awards for the best in film, TV, the theatre and music, but there is also an award designed to recognise and reward the best in UK space research and exploration. The 2007 Sir Arthur Clarke awards will be presented at a gala dinner at the annual conference of the British Rocketry Oral History Programme (BROHP), to be held next Spring at the prestigious Charterhouse School near Godalming in Surrey.
The BROHP conference now attracts over 300 delegates from around the world for 3 days of presentations on various aspects of space and rocketry.
The 2007 event runs from April 12-14 and you can find more details from www.brohp.org.uk. On the Saturday evening, the 2007 Sir Arthur Clarke Awards - the space Oscars - will be presented at a gala dinner. The Arthurs are intended to recognise and reward the best of UK space achievement. Nominations are invited from the public. Simply go to the website and fill in the on-line form.
A panel of distinguished judges will draw up the shortlist and vote in a secret ballot, but it is up to you to submit your choice of names.
You can make as many nominations in as many categories as you wish, but they must be submitted by the end of December.
So if you have been impressed, intrigued or inspired by some aspect of space exploration, then go to the website at www.clarkeawards.org and fill in the on-line nomination form.
Please do your bit to support space in the UK.
