In conjunction with the College’s annual Research Day, the comms team organises a research blog competition.

This is a great opportunity for members of the College community to spread the word about their research. It is free to enter and the winner will receive a £200 Love Cambridge Gift Card! We will also endeavour to publish each entry on the College website.

Research blogs can include undergraduates’ projects (perhaps for a dissertation, or a summer research project) as well as research projects conducted by graduate students, post-docs, and research fellows.

If you would like to enter the blog competition, please email, who will send you the blog template.

The comms team will then create the final blog using your completed template. The winner will be announced at our annual Research Day.

Please note: We are not currently accepting submissions. The date for 2023 submissions will be announced early next year.


  • This blog may be publicly visible, so remember you are trying to reach a wide audience.  It's a good idea to make your responses understandable to someone who has not studied your subject. It can be helpful to imagine you are explaining your research to an interested friend or family member.

  • Please provide images with your submission. Ideally, we would have two photographs of yourself and at least two images relevant to your research.
