Photo & Caption Contest: Share Your Research Story!

Posted on Mon, Feb 12, 2018


Ossila are giving away 50 exclusive T-shirts & 5 x £50 Amazon UK vouchers! 

We’re interested in getting to know you - the Ossila scientific community - and the many ways in which you use our products in your research. Why did you choose to be in science, and how do Ossila products help you in your research? We want to hear your stories!


To take part, all you need to do is:

  1. Take a photo of any Ossila lab equipment that you use (e.g. Spin Coater, UV Ozone Cleaner, Syringe Pump, etc – full list available in T&Cs below)
  2. Write a creative caption that mentions the Ossila product in the photo and how it helps you in your research! Use the hashtag #OssilaGiveaway at the end of your caption.
  3. Follow & tag the Ossila Ltd LinkedIn/Facebook/Twitter page in your post.
  4. Make sure that privacy settings for your post are set to “Public”, otherwise we won’t be able to see it!


The first 50 qualifying entries will be rewarded with an exclusive Ossila T-shirt (choose size from S/M/L/XL). In addition to that - there are also extra-special prizes for the Top 5 most creative entries - £50 Amazon UK vouchers each!
