Video contest for young marine scientists | Marine@Ugent

Video contest for young marine scientists

Do you not only want to publish in high-ranked, peer-reviewed journals, but also communicate your science to a wide audience? And do you want to do that in an easy and more original way? All young scientists (PhD-students, postdocs etc.) from Marine@UGent are encouraged to take part in our video contest! You can win great prices.



Videos will be uploaded on the Marine@UGent website and displayed on the upcoming event for young marine scientists (more info coming soon).


Practical info:

  • Videos should be maximum 90 seconds long
  • The Marine@UGent logo should be included (contact me for the files)
  • Send your finished video along with the following information to by 31 January 2014: first name, last name, research group, (co-authors), title of your movie


If you have never made a video before, there are some tips here : programmes you can use, how to use photo and audio or just video, what to do with bad sound or how to convert files.



Do you need some inspiration for a topic for your video?

Why not show some interesting results with a broader explanation of why this is relevant for society? Or film a tour in the lab: the daily life of a marine scientist, or a movie about field work. Any topic is fine, as long as there is some marine link.
