Call for entries: NESCent announces Evolution Video Contest
Application deadline: Friday May 31, 2013
Submit your best evolution-themed video for screening at this year’s Evolution meeting!
The National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) invites scientists and science educators of all stripes — students, postdocs, faculty, and full- or part-time science communicators — to enter the third annual Evolution Video Competition. To enter, please submit a video that explains a fun fact, key concept, compelling question, or exciting area of evolution research in three minutes or less. Entries may be related or unrelated to your own research, and should be suitable for use in a classroom (K-12, undergraduate, graduate…your choice). Videos should be both informative and entertaining. (In other words, no taped lectures or narrated Powerpoint presentations!) Animations, music videos, and mini documentaries are all fair game. The finalists will be screened at the 2013 Evolution meeting in Snowbird, Utah. To enter your video, please complete our online registration form.
More information coming soon.
