3MT Competiton - People's Choice Vote
First developed by the University of Queensland in 2008, the Three Minute Thesis competition (3MT®) challenges research students to communicate the significance of their projects to a non-specialist audience in just three minutes.
Building on the success of the Trans-Tasman competition, a U21 competition has been launched for 2013. Each participating member has already held their own internal 3MT competition to select a local winner who will shortly be put forward for the U21 Grand final, taking place during October.
The Grand Final is a virtual event where video entries rather than live presentations will be judged. Two prizes will be available for participants in this event:
- Judge's Choice: Prizewinner will receive a bursary of US$2,500 to visit a U21 university of their choice, to benefit their research or on-going career development.
- People's Choice: Prizewinner will receive US$300.
How to Vote for the People's Choice Winner
The People's Choice vote is open from 12pm (UK Time - BST) 11 October 2013 and closes at 12pm (UK Time - BST) 25 October 2013 and is available to absolutely everyone, whether a member of U21 or not.
You can vote by visiting the following web page and clicking 'Like' on your favourite video entry:
The videos will only be available to view from 11-25 October so you will not be able to vote before or after this time frame.
The overall winners will be announced on Tuesday 29 October.
