This March is the third annual juried Research Reels video contest. Submit a short video (30 seconds to 3 minutes) of research happening on campus. If selected as a finalist, you'll have your piece screened at Cinecenta in front of an audience at Ideafest on March 5, 2019.

Reasons to enter

  • Great cash prizes. Top prize for the "Feature" category is $1,250. Total prize payout is $4,000.
  • Shortlisted videos are shared widely on UVic's main social media channels. A couple of last years' winners had spin-off media success in part because of this contest.
  • Build your storytelling skills using video—the hottest medium around.

Entry deadline is Feb. 20, 2018. We can't wait to see what you create!
