Good communication is fundamental to scientific research. With 25 years’ experience in publishing and research communication, MDPI understands the importance of good writing. For this reason, we have launched the MDPI Writing Prize, which aims to promote clear, high-quality prose that powerfully communicates key scientific concepts. We invite you to participate in this year’s competition.

The competition is open to authors whose first language is not English, and who are Ph.D. students or postdoctoral fellows at a research institute.

‐ Author affiliation, including the address of your research institute;

‐ Name, address, and email address of your supervisor—this can be your Ph.D. supervisor, principal investigator, line manager, or equivalent;

Entries will be assessed by the MDPI English Editing Department based on grammar, spelling, punctuation, phrasing, style and overall structure, and interest and relevance to the topic.
