£200 student essay competition

7 August 2007

There is only one month left for UCL students to submit their entries for the 'Opticon1826' essay competition.

The winner will receive £100, two runners-up will receive £50 each, and all three are going to be published in the Autumn 2007 issue of the student-led journal.

The editors are asking UCL students to submit an essay of between 2,000 and 2,500 words on 'The Future of...'.

Editor-in-Chief Miss Gesche Ipsen said: "Entrants are entirely free to choose their topic, which could be the future of something very specific - such as 'The Future of Algae in the Mediterranean' - or something broader - such as 'The Future of Money', or 'The Future of Human Rights'."

'Opticon 1826' editorial staff and academic reviewers will review all entries and the final decisions will be made by the editorial staff. The deadline is 5pm on 7 September 2007.

The general call for papers for the next issue is also still open, which has the same deadline as the competition.
