Video Contest: NSERC Science, Action!

December 05, 2017

NSERC’s Science, Action! video contest is offering cash prizes for short videos that tell a simple story about fascinating science.

Shoot a 60 second video featuring research in the natural sciences or engineering fields and write a 100-word biography telling us a bit about yourself. The 15 videos that tell the best stories will receive a cash prize ($3500 for 1st place) and be featured as part of museum exhibits, science fairs and during Science Odyssey and Science Literacy Week.

Your audience? Anyone from ages 7 to 77! This is your chance to connect with thousands of Canadians and show them why research matters. You’ve got one minute to win a cash prize. Grab a camera, tell your story and show us your science!


  • Must be a Canadian resident
  • Provide a 100-word written biography telling us a bit about yourself
  • Enrolled at a Canadian postsecondary institution
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Create a 60 second video featuring NSERC-funded research

NSERC also offers an additional special prize worth $3,000 dollars for videos featuring research in or about Canada’s North. This prize is in addition to the Final Fifteen prizes, meaning contestants are eligible for up to two prizes with one video submission! To qualify, the featured research must demonstrate a strong connection to Canada’s North.

To find out more about this competition, please visit the NSERC Science, Action! website. The deadline to submit videos through their online portal is January 19, 2017.
