Tweet your Thesis/ Tweet your Research
2023 Competition- Winners Announced!
As part of our Research Showcase, we challenged our PGRs to communicate their research to a public audience – in 280 characters. Our Tweet Your Thesis/Tweet Your Research competition is inspired by the #tweetyourthesis hashtag, and the British Library’s #ShareMyThesis competition.
Our Tweet Your Thesis competition 2023 ran from 9am on 5 June until 5pm on 9 June.
The prizes for this years competition are as follows:
- 1st prize £100 voucher
- 2nd prize £75 voucher
- 3rd prize £50 voucher
- You must be a University of Exeter postgraduate researcher (PGR).
- To enter, you must tweet your thesis between 9am on 5th June and 5pm on 9th June.
- You are limited to one 280 character tweet.
- Links to extra text explaining your research is not allowed (no Twitter threads - it has to be one tweet!)
- You can include images in your tweet, but not those that contain text.
- Gifs and emojis can also be used!
- If you are a PGR, you must use the #tweetyourthesis and tag @ExeterDoctoral. Failure to add both in your tweet will be automatic disqualification from the competition.
Please note your tweets will be displayed in a feed on the Doctoral College website, and on screen as part of our Three Minute Thesis competition, PGR Inductions and other Doctoral College events.
Tweets will be judged according to:
- Clarity of tweet
- Succinctness of tweet
- Accessibility to a layman’s audience
The panel will also consider the impact and inventiveness of your use of your 280 characters.
The judges for the 2023 Tweet Your Thesis competition are:
- Dr Chris Wood, Head of Researcher Development and Research Culture, Doctoral College, Researcher Development and Research Culture
- Prof. Steve West, Department Director of Postgraduate Research, Complex Living Institute, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
- Kelly Louise Preece, Head of Academic Development and Skills/Manager: Education Development and Enhancement, Teaching Quality Assurance & Enhancement
