ESRC’s Writing Competition NOW OPEN!

Better Lives: ESRC’s Writing Competition

 Are you an ESRC-funded PhD student?

ESRC want to hear from you about how your research contributes to people having better lives, and why your research matters.

ESRC are running their third Writing Competition to reward outstanding written communication and to communicate social science research to the wider general public.

ESRC would like you to write about your research in an article of no more than 800 words, and send it to them by 16.00 on 7 December 2018. The writers of all shortlisted articles will be invited to attend a writing masterclass run by ESRC partner SAGE Publishing and an award ceremony in London. Winners will receive a £1000 prize and two runners up will each receive £500.
