Visualise Your Thesis competition

The Visualise your Thesis (VYT) competition is an initiative of The University of Melbourne.  VYT gives you the opportunity to showcase your research and assist you to build essential digital communication skills to effectively communicate complex research to a general audience.

Visualise Your Thesis challenges HDR students to present their research in a 60 second, striking audio-visual presentation. Using a pre-supplied PPT template, you can convert your research into a short and engaging digital narrative.

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, multi-media, interactivity and interpretation, is suitable for all disciplines, and stages of candidature.
