Visualise Your Thesis Competition 2019

Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) is a national competition that challenges research students to present their research in a 60 second, eye-catching digital display. Using a pre-supplied template, entrants create a striking looped presentation to encapsulate their research projects. 

Visualise Your Thesis is open to currently enrolled UTS PhD, Master’s by Research or Industry Doctorate candidates, to build digital communication skills to effectively communicate complex research to a general audience.

In order to get started on your submission, you will firstly need to register your interest via this online form and then download the Entrant Pack and PowerPoint Template via Sharepoint.

You might also find our Study Guide page helpful to assist in your submission. 

Competition submissions are judged on their visual impact and how well the content presents the research. The digital format allows for different levels of creativity, multimedia, interactivity and interpretation and is suitable for all disciplines. View some of the entries from last year's competition here.
