Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) is back!

Have you ever wondered how TED talks make complex ideas sound so simple? Register for Visualise Your Thesis 2021 and develop the skills to communicate your own research with the world. Submissions close 30 July 2021, so the perfect time to start is right now!

What is VYT?

VYT is an international competition that challenges HDR students to present their projects in a 60-second, eye-catching, audio-visual digital display. Using a pre-supplied template, you are tasked with developing a striking e-poster presentation that succinctly describes your research, and its potential benefits, to a non-specialist audience.  

Why should I participate?

VYT is great opportunity to build and apply your digital literacy skills. By creating a “visual elevator pitch” you will develop crucial employability skills including effective communication, digital literacy, and visual storytelling. You will also build your awareness of open access to information and copyright.

The winning entry will represent the University of Sydney in the 2021 Visualise Your Thesis International Competition and have the opportunity to win up to $5000!

How can I apply? 

The Visualise Your Thesis Competition is open to currently-enrolled graduate researchers (i.e. students enrolled in M.Phil., Masters by Research, Ph.D. or Professional Doctorate programmes) at any stage of their candidature who are active and attending.

Register your interest and we will email the official Entrant Pack with all the information you need to develop and submit your entry. Submissions close on Friday, 30 July 2021.
