LONDON, Jan. 13 RNewswire-AsiaNet/ -- ChemWeb, Inc. have launched a web-site dedicated to their search for the International Young Chemistry Writer of the Year 2000, at http://www.chemweb.com/youngwriter .

The competition, sponsored by SciQuest.com, is open to writers aged 16 to 30, who should explore, in 1000 to 2000 words, topical, chemistry-related subjects, in original and informative feature- style articles. The closing date for entries is 30 June 2000.

The winner will receive $1,500, and a free trip to the American Chemical Society meeting in Washington DC, 20-24 August 2000. The winning article will be published in ChemWeb.com's webzine, The Alchemist, giving the winner the chance to be read by over 150,000 chemists around the world. Two runners up will receive $500.

This is the third year of the competition. Details of previous winners and their articles can be found on the site, and rules, and the panel of judges. Liz Rawlings, Editor of The Alchemist, commented "The Young Chemistry Writer of the Year competition is a brilliant opportunity for young chemists to write on an area of chemistry that excites them, which will have broad appeal to a scientifically-literate audience. The prizes are awarded to those who, in the opinion of the judges, have both hit upon a new area of chemistry and presented it in an informative and stimulating article."
