Want to communicate your research to a wider audience and try your hand at video production? Now’s your chance! The competition is open to early career scientists (ECS) who intend to register for the EGU General Assembly.
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 2017.
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 (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.
Why not take a look at the finalists and winner of the 2015 competition for an idea of what makes a winning entry?
Inside Himalayan Lakes, by Zakaria Ghazoui was the 2015 Communicate Your Science Video Competition winner.
Feeling inspired? Send your video to Laura Roberts (email@example.com) by 4 March 2016. Once your entry has been received we will also ask for you to provide proof of online registration to EGU 2016. Check the EGU website for more information about the competition and pre-register for the conference (opens mid-December) on the EGU 2016 website
Shortlisted videos will be showcased on the EGU YouTube Channel in March – April 2016, 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.
