Hi, I will be 16 on 11/09/14, and I am a very enthusiastic geographer who plans to enter an academic career in Geography. I believe my age makes me eligible to enter the competition for iGeo 2015. If I can fairly complete the essay and entrance competition to a higher standard than older students, does the judging pledge not to overlook my application in favour of others because of their higher age?

Dear George

As you will be aged between 16 and 19 yrs on the first day of the competition you are more than welcome to enter, and will be judged on the merits of your essay.

Are geographers from NZ permitted to enter? Is this an international competition?

Hi Ellen,

Unfortunately not. Although it is an ‘International Competition’, this is about the UK round to identify a team to go on to the ‘International Competition’.

The winners of this round will then represent TeamUK. They will be required to attend a meeting for the team in the UK before hand and engage fully with raising their own sponsorship.
