EGU Video Competition: Communicate Your Science

Try something different this EGU General Assembly. Take the challenge and communicate your research to a wider audience and through video! Young scientists pre-registered for the EGU General Assembly are invited to take part in the EGU’s first ever Communicate Your Science Video Competition. The aim is to produce a video up-to-three-minutes long to share your research with the general public. The winning entry will receive a free registration to the General Assembly in 2015. 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 include cartoons, animations, 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.

The aim is to produce a short and sweet (under 3 minutes) video to communicate your research with the general public. See this example video by Sam Illingworth, who represents young scientists on the Programme Committee of the General Assembly

For more information and guidelines for how to enter can be found on the EGU young scientists’ website

Send your video to mynott@egu.eu. Deadline is 21 March 2014. Good luck.
