Ethical Futures: £1,000 short story competition about the future of the human race


Imagine a world where people are able to choose from a menu of ‘enhancing’ techniques: IQ, strength, disease prevention, age extension. What would life be like in such a world? What ethical dilemmas might it raise?

Your story will be judged by Justina Robson, author of Quantum Gravity: Keeping it Real series; Dr Anjana Ahuja, Science Notebook columnist for The Times and Cory Doctorow, science fiction novelist.

The competition open to non-professional writers and video producers. Entries should be no more than 2,000 words or 10 minutes in length. Closing date: 30 June 2007. For more details, see: www.theRSA.org/ethical.
