2015 NPAW Contest

NPAW 2015 banner


Enter our Postdoc Appreciation Week Back to the Future Instagram challenge. The photo can be as simple and literal as a selfie in costume, or as interpretive as you wish – something that represents your past or future.

You can start posting on Saturday, September 19; the contest ends at 6:00 pm on Thursday the 24th. Make sure you tag us on your photo (@USCpostdocs) and include these hashtags on your post: #USCNPAW2015 #USCPostdocLife. 

Extra points for those who submit #SelfieWithMyMentor and #myIDP photos!

We’ll send out a reminder to everyone to “like” their favorites throughout the week. Our office and the USC PDA will select the winner from the pool of photos with the most likes/engagement at the special outdoor screening of Back to the Future II at the Gamble House in Pasadena.

The first place winner takes home an iPad Air!

Good luck!
