PhD students from all academic disciplines are invited to enter this competition. Four individuals will be selected as SAYAS bloggers, and these candidates must commit to writing a monthly entry until December 2015. To be eligible for this competition, you must be a registered PhD candidate at a South African institution, and your supervisor should also support your commitment to this blogging project.
- Blogs must be 500-1000 words long, written in an informal/ colloquial English suited to a non-academic/ lay audience. Send entries as a Word document in an email attachment.
- Photos are welcome but not compulsory.
- The topic for the competition entry can be anything related to your PhD: you have to entice the reader to follow your personal story throughout the year!
Send competition entries and queries directly to Dr Aliza le Roux: email@example.com. Include your own contact details, thesis topic and supervisor’s contact details in the body of the email.
Competition closes 27 February 2014
