The global redistribution of our planets’ species is widely recognised as a fingerprint of climate change, however, the mechanisms that underpin such range shifts are poorly understood. Species responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving multi-disciplinary research field and we are hosting an international conference that brings together global experts across many disciplines.
We are excited to launch a research video competition that aims to showcase & reward scientists for engaging their research with both the public and colleagues outside their own field. Videos can be uploaded from any student or scientist affiliated with a research paper at our international conference in Hobart, Australia, in Feb, 2016 - with two separate prizes on offer. A 'people's choice award' as voted by the public has a prize of $1000, while a 'Conference Award' will also be selected by all attendees of the conference, with a prize of a Tasmanian food and gift pack.
Who can Enter?
These video awards are available to any students & researchers either attending the SOTM conference or are those not-attending but are listed as co-author' of a paper being presented at the conference.
How to Enter?
Tell us about your research in a video of three minutes or less with a short summary description. It could be a general overview of your research or a specific finding or idea you would like to puruse. It could also be some knowledge that is fascinating or a misconception relating to the redistribution of species. The goal of the video is to engage your research with a wide audience. The more fascinating, creative and engaging the video, the wider the audience who will support it.
