The British Library is currently running a Twitter based competition for all PhD authors and current doctoral students, inviting them to say why their doctoral research is/was important, using the hashtag #ShareMyThesis.
It’s great seeing the range of incredible research – https://twitter.com/search?f=realtime&q=%23sharemythesis&src=typd
The competition aims to raise awareness of the importance of doctoral research and increase visibility of the PhD thesis as a valuable source of research information. There are some great prizes. Competition web page at: http://www.bl.uk/share-my-thesis/
The competition closes on 9 February, when eight entries will be shortlisted and invited to expand their tweet into a blog post.
