Arctic On Film Contest
Share your research through a creative lens
ArcticNet is thrilled to present an exciting social media contest designed to encourage students to share their research through visual media. We are pleased to announce the “Arctic On Film” contest with the Association for Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) Canada and the ArcticNet Student Association (ASA). This contest entails creating a short video reel depicting your Arctic research which will be submitted and ranked by a group of judges comprised of members from ArcticNet, APECS Canada and the ASA. As science communication efforts become more prevalent in research, we invite students to explore new platforms and tools to share their meaningful research. The goal of “Arctic On Film” Is to communicate using plain language and creative filming, while maintaining the complexity of your research.
