This week, GradHacker ran it’s very first photo contest. We asked our readers to submit photos of their workspaces: the good, the bad, the ugly, and you responded in force! We saw libraries filled with books, pets in baskets and on windowsills, hacked standing desks (one with a treadmill!), re-purposed thrift store finds, shared desks, messy desks, clean desks, and oh so much more. One thing became very clear: grad students are incredibly resourceful! So without further ado, we announce the winners:
First Prize Winner:
Noam R. from Davis, CA
- A set of three terrariums from Doodle Birdie
- A print of your choice from The Office Stylist
- A print of your choice from Pig and Gin
- A print of your choice from Bugsy and Sprite
- Dopp Milan Soft Sided Multi Zip Travel Toiletry Bag from Overstock.com
- GradHacker Swag Pack

Second Prize Winner:
Renee W. from Toronto
And these three lucky, randomly selected eligible entrants will win Inside Higher Ed and GradHacker Swag Packs:
1. Stephen S. from Raleigh, NC
2. Elodie C. from Montreal, Canada
3. Angela S. from Great Cacapon, WV
