Following on from the successful session in 2012, early career science journalists tested out their pitching skills live to a panel of editors (Dragons) in front of the audience. The session is intended to tease out the keys to successful pitching and those who take part may well end up finding their story commissioned. Entry to the Dragon's Den is by online application judged by the Dragon's. NB: those selected to pitch get free entry to the UKCSJ.
