FameLab is one of the biggest science communication competitions in the world.
FameLab is a live science communication competition that aims to discover charismatic early career scientists who can inspire people to see the world from new perspectives. It is run annually in Australia and in over 30 countries across 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!
Applications for FameLab 2018 will be opening soon!
We'll be opening applications for the 2018 competition in late November 2017, and can't wait to hear about the new research and discoveries coming from labs across Australia.
To enter, you will be asked to complete an online form and submit a short video of you talking about your research. More details will be available here shortly.
Semi-finals will take place in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth during March and April 2018. If you are selected to take part in one of the semi-finals, you will attend the closest event to you and will be asked to present your scientific topic to our panel of judges.
Enter to improve your skills with our expert sci-comm training, PLUS you could win $1,000 and a trip to the UK to present at the international finals!
