/Images/ Win your Future Unlimited competition

The Win your Future Unlimited competition ran for seven weeks in October and November 2013. Every week we selected a finalist, with the seven finalists winning a two week study tour in Australia.

The seven finalists were selected from the 37,000 entries we received from over 190 countries. The study tour ran in December 2013 and the finalists met with our 22 sponsor institutions in Adelaide, Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Hobart, Launceston, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

During the study tour, the finalists were interviewed by an expert judging panel comprising Michael Fox (CEO and Co founder of Shoes of Prey), Helen Zimmerman (Executive General Manager, Navitas and President of the International Education Association of Australia) and a senior Austrade executive.

From the seven finalists, the panel had to select one person as the winner of the major prize - 12 months study, return flights, accommodation, a stipend and the opportunity for an internship. It was a tough job for our judges as all seven finalists had amazing stories and ambitions. But only one person could win the major prize. And the person selected was Uttam Kumar from India.

In July 2014 Uttam commences his Masters Degree in Materials Science at the University of New South Wales, focusing on the development of composites from renewable materials.
