The Geological Society of London recently ran a competition to design a front cover for their monthly magazine, Geoscientist.
In May this year, the Geological Society will mark the 100th anniversary of female Fellowship, with the first eight women elected to Fellowship on 21 May 1919, and the Society hoped for the cover of Geoscientist to reflect this.
Our Technical Administrator, Lauren Moore, is very creatively talented and submitted an entry which we’re excited to announce came a close runner up!
Lauren’s illustration depicts the diversity of women in geology throughout time, and highlights the support that networks of female geoscientists have given each other.
We’re thrilled that Lauren’s artwork was recognised as a favourite and that we are able to be part of this important milestone for the Geological Society.
