We know that the summer months can be busy for Bristol’s postgraduate researchers, and that many of you use the time to travel overseas for conferences, symposia, field work, and so on.
We thought it’d be fun, then, to launch a photo challenge with a travel twist.
Yes, our #PGRtrek competition is back for 2018 — and, this time around, the postgraduate researcher who’s been to the farthest-flung location (for ‘business’ reasons rather than pleasure) will win a £50 contribution towards the cost of any research-related travel. We’ll also be offering another £50 contribution to a random draw from all other entrants to the challenge.
To enter our competition — and see your pin on our map — just share a snap from your travels in one of the following ways:
- as a comment on one of the Bristol Doctoral College’s #PGRtrek Facebook posts
- as a tweet with the #PGRtrek hashtag
- as an Instagram post with the #PGRtrek hashtag
- in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll be sharing a #PGRtrek gallery on the blog later in the year, so please let us know if you don’t want your picture to be featured.
The closing date for the competition is noon on Friday 31 August. Good luck — and happy snapping!
