2018 Mechanical Engineering Postgrad Video Competition

Are you sick of waving your hands around mumbling “physics and stuff” when people ask you what your research is on?

Describe your Mechanical or Mechatronics research in an easy-to-understand 60 seconds video and be in to win one of 3 $200 prizes!

The Postgrad Video Competition competition will allow you to explain your research to lay people in 60 second videos. Our audience’s curiosity has already been piqued: we’re catering to a smart bunch!

What we judge:

  1. Clarity of content 
  2. Impact of the research & original contribution
  3. Storytelling

The Judging panel: one academic and one technical staff member, two publicity team members, three postgrad students from other disciplines.

While we encourage creative freedom, we are also mindful of, and would probably disqualify videos which feature: violence, copyright infringement, high risk to you, the audience and the general public at large.
