The Visualise Your Thesis competition dates have changed due to COVID–19. The new dates for the 2020 competition are outlined below.
Visualise Your Thesis is an international competition that challenges graduate researchers to summarise their research in an engaging, 60-second visual multimedia presentation. It gives the researcher the opportunity to build essential digital communication skills so they can effectively communicate complex research to a general audience.
Registration is now open and entry submission will be open from 1 July to 7 August.
HDR students should contact email@example.com for further information.
You are required to develop a 60-second presentation, using a supplied template, that encapsulates your research project. Competition submissions are judged on their visual impact, and how well the content presents the research. The competition allows for multi-media, interactivity and interpretation and is suitable for all disciplines.
The University supports competitors with a competition pack that includes training materials and guidance to help put together a winning entry. We will also have online drop-in sessions to answer questions and provide advice closer to the close of submissions.
You are eligible to enter if you are a currently enrolled Higher Degree by Research candidate, at any stage of your candidature.

If you’re also employed by the University of Sydney, you are not prohibited from entering unless you have, or are perceived to have, influence over the competition outcome, research funding or related resourcing, then you would not be eligible to participate.
