Visualise Your Thesis Competition 2020

Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) is an International 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.

You might also find our Study Guide page helpful to assist in your submission.  Questions can be directed to visualiseyourthesis@uts.edu.au.

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. 

The winner of the International Visualise Your Thesis competition 2019 was a UTS Science student. The 2020 UTS first round winner will go on to compete in the International online showcase hosted by The University of Melbourne in October. All entries for Visualise Your Thesis will be eligible for prizes which is as follows:
