EThOS, the UK’s national thesis service which aims to maximise the visibility and availability of the UK’s doctoral research theses, is organizing the #ShareMyThesis competition, which challenges PhD students past and present to summarise why your PhD research is important in 140 characters or less.
The competition welcomes worldwide entries that must be written in English. In order to be eligible you must be currently enrolled on or have in the past completed a PhD degree in any subject area.
The winner will receive a 15-inch MacBook pro. Second prize is an iPad and third prize a £200 Amazon voucher.
In order to enter the competition, 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). Tweets must be received by 9 February 2015 at 10.00.
The judging panel will then select the top eight tweets. The eight shortlisted entrants will be asked to write a short article (up to 600 words) elaborating on their tweet and explaining why their PhD research is important. Winners will be announced by 20 March 2015.
