There won't be any cost involved in completing the entry form. If your entry is selected then you will be invited to come to the Great North Museum. There is no formal entry charge but you will have to check with your university regarding support with the cost of producing your entry and travel to/from Newcastle. However, because there is a very limited number of places at the event, we will be making a charge of £50 to anyone who accepts a place and who then doesn't attend (without good reason/at least 3 weeks notice).
