Apply for Falconer 150 Essay Competition

Inspired by the multifaceted life and work of Hugh Falconer (1808-1865) botanist, geologist, and palaeontologist, the Falconer 150 Essay Competition celebrates 150 years since the Falconer Museum first opened to the public.

The winning essay will be awarded £150 in prize money, with other prizes for three more essays. All winning essays will be published online and some will be included in an anthology about Hugh Falconer.

The Friends have just received a grant from Berry Burn Community Fund to support the publication of an engaging book about this still underrated son of Forres.

The scientific content is not required (although never a hindrance). Imagination is key. What was it like to find a fossilized bone and realize that it belonged to a mammoth? What is going on in the head of the Tortiphant?

Falconer 150 Essay Competition Prizes:

The winning author will receive £150, will be invited to read the essay at a public event marking Scottish Book Week in November, with the essay published on the museum’s website (http://falconermuseum.co.uk/) and in an anthology about Falconer.

The best essay sent in by a young person (under-17) will receive a £35 book token.

Two highly commended essays will each be awarded £50.

All winning entries will be published on the museum’s website and may be included in the anthology.


 Essays can be written in any form of prose, should be no longer than 3,000 words, should not have been previously published, and need to be sent in online via [email protected]. If the author is younger than 17, please do not forget to mention this.

Deadline: September 15, 2022, 3pm. The Friends of the Falconer Museum aim to inform the winners before October 2.
