2011 Global 60 Second Science Video Competition launched with $11,000 in Prizes

Following an unprecedented number of entries in an Australian school video competition in 2010, the competition has been re-launched as a global competition for 2011, with entry categories for both students and ordinary citizens from any country.

To encourage entries from indigenous communities and non-English speaking countries, a category has been created for 60 second science videos with a narration which is in a Language Other Than English (LOTE).

This Citizen Science Education project invites citizens and students world-wide to create and upload a 60 second video which explains a science concept or phenomena. Entry is free, with cash prizes being awarded by a prestigious panel of International Scientists, film-makers and multimedia experts.
