There are just four weeks remaining to submit entries to the 2015 Ocean 180 Video Challenge!
To enter, ocean scientists are invited to submit a 3 minute video abstract highlighting a recent peer-reviewed publication. Entries which best communicate the meaning, significance, and relevance of the research to non-scientific audiences will be awarded a total of $9,000 in cash prizes.
To submit your entry, please visit http://ocean180.org/for-scientist/video-abstract-submission.html
Submission will close on Monday, December 1 at 11:59pm (PST).
If you are considering submitting a video abstract, we encourage you to view our information session, available here: http://ocean180.org/for-scientist/faq.html
While all videos will be evaluated by a team of science and communication experts, the top 10 finalists will be screened by over 30,000 middle school students in 21 countries. These student judges will evaluate the finalists and ultimately select the winning entries. This is an excellent opportunity to share your work with a broad audience and to practice communicating your research to the public.
Please contact info at ocean180.org<mailto:info at ocean180.org> with questions. We're looking forward to seeing your submissions this fall!
