“Give you a minute” Competition

Students and Early Careers Researchers – we’ll “give you a minute” for you to tell us your research story……..

Scientific communication is important. We all need to relay our important research findings to the scientific and wider community clearly and concisely. We usually don’t have long to capture people’s attention, so we are giving you a minute (and not a second more!).

You can tell your research story in any way you wish, the more creative the better! The judges are looking to see how your research is contributing to solving a specific issue or problem. So, don’t spend all of your time telling us about the issue – we want to know what you are doing about it and how you are achieving your research goals.

If you are registered for the full conference, then you can enter into this competition and submit your 1-minute video. There are two streams:
– Students (undergraduate (completing research projects), Honours, PhD, Masters)
– Early Career Researchers (<5 years post-graduation)

All videos submitted will feature at the conference. There will be a winner in each category to be announced on the final day of the conference.  The winners will receive a $250 visa e-gift card.

To enter you must be registered to attend the full conference (in person or virtually) and abide by the below Terms and Conditions.

Entries close 5:00pm AWDT 15th January 2021.
