VTT Community Competition

We said that our profits from the sales of our cards would go to help affected by volcanic activity. We are now inviting applications to our first Volcanoes Top Trumps Community Competition!

The First Competition  prize was awarded to ‘Tierras del Volcan’ on the slopes of Cotopaxi in Ecuador

The second round of this competition is now open- this time for a prize of up to £4000. Entries close on January 25th 2019.

Entry forms are downloaded via this link:VTT Competition Form_2

The prize will be won by those who propose exciting and innovative projects with a strong focus on those affected by volcanic activity (or that develop new ways to communicate about volcanic hazards). This will be judged by the Volcanoes Top Trumps Team based on an updated entry form.

Entries should demonstrate that the project has been designed collaboratively with the needs of the target community or audience in mind, and completed within 12 months. Where appropriate, entrants should be able to demonstrate that they have approval of the local risk management or volcano monitoring agency for their project.

A condition of entering this competition is that you are willing to write a reflective blog and provide evidence of the impact you achieved, on the execution of your project.  and that you can accept a payment in pounds sterling.

We expect prize winners will be announced and the new project(s) will run in 2019-2020.
