FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world.

If you think you can explain a scientific concept to a general audience, in just three minutes, FameLab's the competition for you! You could become the new face of science, represent your country at the FameLab International final in the UK, and open doors to global opportunities in science communication!

Get ready for FameLab 2017!

Applications for FameLab 2017 will open on 9 January. Submit a short video entry and you could be invited to perform live at one of the national semi-final events taking place in NSW, QLD, VIC and WA between March and May 2017. Check back here for regular updates about the 2017 competition.

Are you a spectator rather than a competitor? No worries! Why not come along to one of our FREE FameLab events to see our contestants explain seemingly unexplainable concepts (like quantum physics) live on stage? Keep an eye on our ‘What’s on’ page as details of the live heats are announced. Each night is sure to be full of laughs, drama and surprises – don’t miss out!
