Studying for, or recently completed, a PhD at Keele?
The British Library, Research Councils UK and Vitae are running a competition challenging you to encapsulate what's great about your research in one tweet.
The #ShareMyThesis competition challenges PhD students past and present to summarise why your PhD research is important in 140 characters or less. The competition is open worldwide and to entries from all subject areas.
First, tweet why your PhD research is important using the hashtag #ShareMyThesis. Your tweet should convey why your research is important (not just what your research is about). Make sure your tweet is self-contained and understandable to a non-specialist.
Tweets must be received by 9 February 2015 at 10.00. The competition judges will then select the top eight tweets.
Next, the eight shortlisted entrants will be asked to write a short article (up to 600 words) elaborating on your tweet and explaining why your PhD research is important.
The judging panel will select a winner and two runners up by 20 March 2015.
The winner will receive a 15-inch MacBook pro. Second prize is an iPad and third prize a £200 Amazon voucher.
