As part of our Research Showcase, we are challenging 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 2022 will run from 9am on 6 June until 5pm on 12 June*. To enter, you must tweet during these times using the #tweetyourthesis and tagging @ExeterDoctoral. Failure to add both in your tweet will be automatic disqualification from the competition.
The prizes for this years competition are as follows:
- 1st prize £100 voucher
- 2nd prize £75 voucher
- 3rd prize £50 voucher
*Please note new dates
- You must be a University of Exeter postgraduate researcher (PGR).
- To enter, you must tweet your thesis between 9am on 6th June and 5pm on 12 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!

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

The panel will also consider the impact and inventiveness of your use of your 280 characters.
