MindCORE #SciComm Video Contest

In an era of decreasing trust in science and scientists, effective science communication has never been more important. At the same time, more Americans than ever get their news from video.

To encourage accurate, accessible scientific communication on platforms that more and more Americans use, MindCORE is soliciting original 1.5 minute videos about any topic in cognitive science. The video could be about your own research, a lecture from a class, or a paper you like. Cash prizes will be given for first ($200) and second ($100) places. Videos will be judged on originality, accuracy, and accessibility to non-expert audiences. For tips on effective science communication, see here. Audio/visuals can use a variety of multimedia but should not be strictly a slideshow of images and must have been created for this contest.

Submissions are due by March 4th 9:00am; winners will be announced by March 15. This contest is open to all undergraduates studying cognitive science and allied fields (psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, etc.). Video submissions may be used on MindCORE’s website and our socials. Music used in your video must not violate an artist’s copyright. You can find free music in a variety of places by searching online, including https://www.freemusicarchive.org. Some may require giving credit to the artist in the video (using a title at the beginning or end).

Questions may be sent to MindCORE Associate Director, Russell Richie, drrichie@sas.upenn.edu.
