Contest: NSERC 1-minute videos, $3k prizes
NSERC has just announced a new 1-minute video contest, with fifteen cash prizes of $3,000 each.
Submissions must include one (1) video that tells a compelling research story in sixty (60) seconds or less, along with a written description of no more than 100 words that describes the research to Canadians.
Deadline for entries is February 27, 2015 at 5 pm Eastern time.

Note: SFU students did very well in last year’s SSHRC version of this contest, with three of our students placing in the top 25 from across Canada. (SSHRC examples: Luseadra McKerracher, Maria Zakharova, Bryce Westlake). If you're looking for inspiration, here are more of their 3-minute entries — and here's how SSHRC used their videos.
