Science Chronicles 2012 Awards Ceremony

It was a crowd of excited sci-fi buffs who attended the latest awards ceremony in February 2013 for the Science Chronicles competition. Some 90 people joined in the festivities and enjoyed the view of the city skyline from the National Library’s scenic Pod facility at Bras Basah, including the student participants and their families and friends, as well as IHPC colleagues and some of the contest judges.

You can view some of the photos of the Awards ceremony here.

Once again, our heartiest congratulations to all the winners and finalists of Science Chronicles 2012!


We look forward to reading the next crop of exciting science fiction short stories in the 2013 edition of the competition.
