SKA SA will accept video entries from SKA SA interns, Young Professionals and staff in Klerefontein and Rosebank; SKA SA bursary students outside Cape Town; and postgraduate students outside of Cape Town working on research directly related to astronomy and/or the SKA. Three participants will be selected and brought to Cape Town to participate in the heat on Tuesday, 7 March 2017.
Upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo or another video hosting site and copy the link. You do not have to list the video as ‘public’, you may upload it as ‘hidden’ or ‘private’, if you prefer. Then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us about yourself, your chosen topic and why you should be selected, and paste the link to your submission in your email (videos attached to an email will be deleted). Please use the subject “FameLab Video Entry”.
The closing date for video entries is Monday, 27 February 2017.
- be no longer than three minutes (content will not be judged after this time limit)
- contain no editing or special effects
- have no background music (unless this is what you are talking about)
- not involve other people or excessive props (follow the guideline ‘props they can carry on stage’).
We are not assessing video/filming quality, we simply need to be able to hear and see you clearly, so feel free to submit entries filmed on a smartphone or camera.
