EGU 2015 Communicate Your Science Video Competition – Deadline Extended!

Earlier this year we launched the Communicate Your Science Video Competition, a great opportunity to share research in the Earth, planetary and space sciences with the general public. What’s more, there’s a free registration to the 2016 General Assembly up for grabs!

What’s it about? Young scientists pre-registered for the EGU General Assembly are invited to take part in the EGU’s Communicate Your Science Video Competition.
The aim: to produce a video up-to-three-minutes long to share your research with the general public.
The prize: a free registration to the General Assembly in 2016.

Your video can include scenes of you out in the field and explaining an outcrop, or at the lab bench showing how to work out water chemistry; entries can also cartoons, animations (including stop motion), or music videos – you name it! As long as you’re explaining concepts in the Earth, planetary and space sciences in a language suitable for a general audience, you can be as creative as you like.

Need some inspiration? Why not take a look at last year’s finalists:

How to enter

Feeling inspired? We’ve extended the deadline for submissions to 12 March. To take part, send your video to Laura Roberts (roberts@egu.eu), together with proof of online pre-registration to EGU 2015. Check the EGU website for more information about the competition and pre-register for the conference on the EGU 2015 website.

Will this be your first time at an EGU General Assembly? With 12,000 participants in a massive venue, the conference can be a confusing and, at times, overwhelming place.

To help you find your way, we have compiled an introductory handbook filled with history, presentation pointers, travel tips and a few facts about Vienna and its surroundings. Download your copy of the EGU General Assembly guide here!

Why not take a look at the finalists and winner of the 2014 competition for an idea of what makes a winning entry?

Feeling inspired? Send your video to Laura Roberts (roberts@egu.eu) by 4 March, together with proof of online pre-registration to EGU 2015. Check the EGU website for more information about the competition and pre-register for the conference on the EGU 2015 website

Shortlisted videos will be showcased on the EGU YouTube Channel in April, when voting opens! In the run up to the General Assembly and during the conference, viewers can vote for their favourite film by clicking on the video’s ‘like’ button. The winning video will be the one with the most likes by the end of the General Assembly.

What are you waiting for? Take the chance to showcase your research and spread great geoscientific facts with the world!

 

Registration for the EGU 2015 General Assembly is open!

The EGU General Assembly brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting that covers all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Following from last year’s success, the EGU General Assembly will have a theme: A Voyage Through Scales. The theme is an invitation to contemplate Earth’s extraordinary variability extending from milliseconds to its age and from microns to the size of the planet. The theme does not constrain the topics to be presented at the Assembly; rather, it will add to the conference experience.

EGU 2015 will be held in Vienna from 12- 17 April 2015, where established scientists and early career researchers alike will be able to present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of the geosciences.

Early registration for the conference is open until 12 March 2015 – you can register online on the General Assembly website. Note that EGU members benefit from reduced member rates; to become a member, go to www.egu.eu/membership/, where you can both become a new member, or renew your EGU membership.

You can get a feel for the great geoscience that will be discussed at the meeting by browsing through the EGU 2015 sessions. Clicking on ‘please select’ will allow you to search for sessions by Programme Group, where you will be able to view the sessions in more detail and submit an abstract to its relevant session.

For more information about the General Assembly, please see the EGU 2015 website.
