#FromSmallToBig photocontest: Win Pint of Science Tickets with Hindawi and #RealTimeChem

Hi everybody,

I’ve got an exciting competition for you all! Courtesy of the fantastic folks at Hindawi, I have 5 tickets to give away to a Pint of Science event near you.


What’s Pint of Science you might ask? Well, I’ll let Hindawi explain:

Spanned across 6 continents and 21 countries with nearly 100,000 attendees, this award-winning festival brings together our favorite scientists to our local pubs, where some of the greatest ideas where born; among friends, sharing a drink and imagining a world where one more question was answered and one more solution was found.

We are proud to announce that we are sponsoring this year’s Pint of Science festival of events in the UK, France, Ireland, and Germany. We invite you to join us for a pint of beer with a touch of science talk, knowledge sharing, and ideas exchange.

Ace huh? How can you win? Well here’s the rules:

Hindawi are sponsoring events across the UK based on “Atoms and Galaxies”. In other words, it is science from the smallest to the biggest. So what better way to win tickets than with a #RealTimeChem photo-contest using the additional hashtag: . All you have to do is tweet a picture on this theme. It can be anything from a picture of the Atomium in Brussels to teeny tiny glassware.

To summarize, a step-by-step guide to enter:

1. Take picture of very small or very big chemistry subject.

2. Tweet picture using #RealTimeChem and #FromSmallToBig and tag @Hindawi. Sprinkle in a little explanation in the tweet

3. You’re entered.  

It is not that long until Pint of Science (14th-16th May). So, this is going to be a fast a furious contest that takes place over just 3 days starting from 9.00 am BST Monday 30th April and finishing at 11.00 pm BST Wednesday 3rd May. 
Winners will be selected and given instructions on how to claim their prizes on 4th May 2018. 
Winners can pick one of the events in the UK (please do check your local is not sold out) as well as events in Ireland, Germany, and France. Event information is below:


Each of the 5 winners will also win a snazzy T-shirt courtesy of Hindawi and modeled here by the incomparable Fani:
