IOP International Year of Light video competition

The Institute of Physics (IOP) in Scotland invites post graduate students and early career researchers to submit videos explaining how light is used their research.

The Institute of Physics (IOP) in Scotland, together with the SINAPSE, SUPA and SULSA research pools, is holding a competition asking post graduate students and early career researchers to send in videos explaining how light is used their research.  The broad definition of 'light' is being used – anything in the electromagnetic spectrum including PET, SPECT, MRI and [obviously] optical imaging.  Can you explain your research to a high school audience?

The competition is calling for videos of up to three minutes in length on the theme of light.  Smartphone recordings are fine, but please try to ensure the sound is good quality.  A panel of judges will select the top three videos and these will be “packaged” by a professional recording company and made available to schools as well as being promoted on a YouTube channel.

The best videos from each research pool will also win £100.

The deadline for submission is 30 November 2015.  For enquiries, or to submit a video, please contact Kristin at kristin.flegal@glasgow.ac.uk.
