RES Undergraduate Video Competition 2019

10 May 2019

Undergraduate students have the chance to win £1,000 by creating a 3-minute video on a topical economic issue.

Individuals or teams of up to six students are invited to create a video exploring how economics can be used to understand current issues. There are no set topics and your video can take whatever form you feel is appropriate (including animation, news bulletins or interviews) so long as it is clear and understandable to a wider audience.

As well as a £1,000 cash prize, the winner will receive a year’s student membership to the Royal Economic Society. The RES (Royal Economic Society) is one of the oldest and most prestigious economic associations in the world. We are a learned society, founded in 1890 to promote the study of economic science.

You have until Friday 26 July 2019 to submit your entry using the form on the RES website

Please upload your video of up to 3 minutes to YouTube (marked as unlisted) and include a link on the online form so we can view it.
