Enter the 8th Annual Evolution Video Contest!

Application deadline: Friday, May 31st, 2019 (11:59 PM, EST)

After a one-year hiatus, the Evolution Video Contest/Film Festival is back!

We took a year off last year, but are excited to bring the Evolution Video Contest/Film Festival back to this year’s Evolution Conference.  So start working on your video now because the deadline to submit is May 31st!

As in past years, this year’s Evolution Film Festival/Video Contest is being sponsored by the Duke Initiative for Science & Society, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE) and the BEACON Center for the Study of Evolution in Action.

The rules are simple: we invite scientists and science educators (students, postdocs, faculty, and full- or part-time science communicators) to make a 3-minute-or-less video telling an interesting evolution story in a fun, creative way. The finalists will be screened at the Evolution 2019 conference, which is being held in Providence, RI from June 21-25, 2019.

For all the details, please click the “How to Submit” link at the top of this page.  To enter your video, please complete our online registration form.  You do not need to attend the conference in order to submit a video, and you do not need to be present to win!

The Evolution Film Festival is always one of the highlights of the Evolution conference.  We hope you will consider submitting your own video this year.  Even if you don’t, if you’re going to be at the Evolution 2019 conference in Providence, please plan to attend the Film Festival on Saturday, June 22nd from 7:30 – 9:00 PM, view all the terrific submissions and vote on your favorite!
