The 2000th issue super duper competition extravaganza

Are you are a fan of: Glitz? Glamour? Free booze?

May 25, 2011

If your answer is yes to at least two out of the three above, you’re going to love the prize for our latest competition.

To celebrate our 2000th issue, we’re giving away two tickets so that you and an acquaintance of your choice can come along to the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards (or Thelmas). You’ll also get a room at the Grosvenor House Hotel where the ceremony is being hosted, so you don’t need to worry about late-night taxis or buses. Travel is not included.

Runners up and winners will receive some all-new super-flashy pens. These are so new and so limited that we don’t even have them ourselves yet.

To enter

In honour of David Willetts’ feature in this week’s magazine, we’d like you to imagine what the headlines on the front cover of THE might look like in five years’ time. There’s a template THE cover for you to write all over on the sidebar to the right. Post your entries to @timeshighered on Twitter or email

Reasons why you might like to win this prize

1. Did you know that this year the Bafta Television Awards were held at the Grosvenor House Hotel? And did you know that the Thelmas are also held there? So if you win this fantastic prize, it’ll be a bit like you went to the Baftas. But not really.

2. Our ceremony this year is being hosted by comedian Dara O’Briain.

3. After the ceremony, there’s a disco. WITH DANCING. If you are a runner up, you should be able to have your own disco thanks to our all-new pens (spoilers!)

4. You’ll get to sit on a table with some HE luminaries and at least one member of THE staff. Don’t worry; you don’t have to talk to any of them if you don’t want to.

5. The rooms at the Grosvenor are really, really swanky and really, really comfortable.

Terms and conditions

1. Employees of TSL Education are not eligible to enter. Mainly because most of them will be there anyway, thus making their entry pointless. They can have a bit of a doodle if they like, though.

2. The competition will close on 1 June and the winner will be announced in the week beginning 6 June.

3. The editor will make the final decision on the winner. All of her decisions are final, binding and non-arguable. You can try arguing, but if you value your life, you probably shouldn’t.

4. Wes Streeting can enter this one if he likes. This is, of course, no guarantee that he will be successful.
