Inspired by Natalie Portman's portrayal of a mentally unbalanced ballerina? Or by Colin Firth's role as a stuttering king? Want to direct your own Social Network like David Fincher?
The Society for Neuroscience is sponsoring a video contest! So it might be more appropriate to use the Oscar nominees for Best Documentary Short Subject as your role models.
Top prize is $1,000 and a free trip to Washington DC, plus complimentary registration to Neuroscience 2011 [up to $650 in value!]! You needn't be a member of SfN to enter the contest, but your video must be submitted by a member.
Convey a neuroscience concept on video!The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) challenges you to make an original video, up to five (5) minutes long, demonstrating a concept about the brain that could be used as a teaching tool or resource. Whether it's through animation, song, or reenactment, share the wonders of science through the Brain Awareness Video Contest.
Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is an inspirational global campaign that unites those who share an interest in elevating public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain and nervous system research.
More details on how to enter are available at the contest website.
Lights, camera, action!
