The eBiolabs Video Competition 2017
First prize: £500! Second Prize £250! Third Prize £100!
Competition deadline June 23rd 2017.
Open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Bristol.
The challenge is to make a short video to accompany a practical on eBiolabs. It could be about gene cloning or it could be about the neuroanatomy of the brain, the choice is yours. If you’re a current UoB student and your video is about an eBiolabs practical run by the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences you can enter. If you are unsure about eligibility please contact us.
These days it’s easy to make videos. Yours could be a computer animation or live action: all you need is some free apps and a laptop or smartphone to help tell your story. You could get your friends to star or you could do all it yourself. We’ve put together a list of helpful sites on Pinterest that you can use for inspiration, and if you need technical help or to borrow equipment that might be possible too.
Your video should make the science come alive for other students in a novel and interesting way. Winning videos will explain why the topics studied in an eBiolabs practical are important and how they relate to the natural world. They don’t need to explain how to carry out scientific techniques because these are already taught in eBiolabs, but you might want to explain the underlying scientific principles as part of your story.
To enter you will need to upload your video to a YouTube account and provide us with the link to the video using a form that will be displayed here before long.
All videos will be judged by staff from the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences, the judges' decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
