Winners to be announced at the symposium.
AVS 2021 would like to encourage all ECR and students to film a 3-minute video that summarises their project.
Create your video
Use a video camera, webcam or your smart phone to record your video.
- tip a smart phone creates a smaller file size and will make fore easier post editing
Videos must consist of the author as you would be presenting the project in person.
Videos must be a maximum of three-minutes, any videos over three minutes will be disqualified.
You may use up to three ppt slides.
We encourage the use of props/costumes to enhance the presentation of the science (not to overshadow the science), if suitable. Props are not a requirement.
Please remember that presenting coherent and engaging science is the primary purpose.
The presenting author and co-authors may co-present in the video content.
- If using your smart phone, mount to a tripod or lean it against an object while you film to avoid shaking.
- Film indoors in a well lit room to avoid wind noise and glare.
- Plan your presentation to cover all your points and make the most of your allotted time. If you prefer, film in stages and use editing software to prepare the video. There are a number of free editing software options available for download on the internet.
To submit your video you must do two things;
1) Upload your video
Upload your video to any video sharing website, such as YouTube or Vimeo
2) Send the video file (no greater than 20Mb) and the video link to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submissions are due by Tuesday 30th November 2021 ( Submission deadline now extended to Friday 3 December 5pm AEDT.)
Judging; Videos will be judged on originality, creativity, clarity of the science and communication, enthusiasm.
Videos will be posted online on the AVS website from the 2nd of December with top 5 presented at the one day Symposium on the 7th of December
