The IMA’s Maths Careers campaign runs a yearly competition for posters illustrating applications of maths. Entry for the 2012/13 competition has opened, and it’s on the theme of the planet Earth, to join in with the Mathematics of Planet Earth year 2013. UK students between the ages of 11 and 19 are invited to submit posters about “*A planet to discover*“, “*A planet supporting life*“, “*A planet organised by humans*” or “*A planet at risk*“.

The deadline for submissions is my birthday, the 14th of January, and the winners from the three age categories will each receive “an Android tablet”.
