image Published: Jul 05, 2016

Faith and Though offer a prize of £500 for the best essay on the subject of 'Designer Babies?'

Closing date: 30 September 2016

This essay competition is open to all, with a particular focus on young people (sixth formers and undergraduates). Please encourage people you may know to take part.

Essays of any length accepted (up to a maximum of 7000 words)

The essay should be factual not (science) fiction

It can be scientific, theological, phillosophical or a mixture of one or more of these.

Ethical issues should be addressed, e.g.

  • What is the purpose of designer babies?
  • Who would benefit from their creation?
  • Would it herald a better 'brave new world'?
  • What about human rights, individuality, and autonomy?
  • How might potential misuses be avoided?

Entries will be anonymised before being professionally refereed and if the referee considers that the prize should be shared between two entries the trustees decision will be final.

Submit your essay by email to Honorary Secretary drapkerry@gmail.com or post to: Dr Alan Kerry, 3 Dukes Place, 19 Watford Road, Croxkey Green, Hertfordshire, WD3 3DP

Good luck!
