Are you interested in producing a short video to communicate an aspect of brain science that fascinates you? Does teaming up with a member of the world’s largest organization of scientists and physicians sound exciting? What about the chance to win $1,000 and a trip to Neuroscience 2019 in Chicago? If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, then the Society for Neuroscience’s Brain Awareness Video Contest is just for you!
Submissions are now open for the 2019 contest, and anyone interested in explaining a neuroscience concept to a lay audience can enter. The Society for Neuroscience offers tips on creating a great video on their site: BrainFacts.org.
Last year’s first place winner was Bradley Allf, library technician at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Allf created a video titled, “I Think, Therefore I Sleep,” which was presented in San Diego at the Brain Awareness Week reception during the 2018 annual meeting.
Second place went to Catherine Bird, a master’s student at the University of College London, for her video: “Runner’s High.”
This year’s submission deadline is June 13, so get going! Don’t forget to read through the contest’s Rules and Guidelines for more information. For inspiration, you can check out the top ten videos from the 2018 Brain Awareness Video Contest here.
