Visualise Your Thesis Competition

Create a 60-second ePoster to explain your research 
for a broad audience

Visualise Your Thesis is an exciting competition introduced by The University of Melbourne that challenges graduate researchers to present their research in a 60-second, eye-catching digital display. Using a pre-supplied template, research postgraduate students are tasked with developing a striking looped presentation to encapsulate their research projects in short, engaging, digital narratives. 

“In this climate of knowledge exchange and community engagement, communicating to an audience outside the Academy is becoming increasingly important for research professionals.” 
(The University of Melbourne)

Competition submissions are judged on their visual impact, and how well the content presents the research to a non-specialist audience. The digital format allows for different levels of creativity, multi-media, interactivity and interpretation and is suitable for all disciplines.

The HKU Visualise Your Thesis Competition (HKU VYT) is launched by the Knowledge Exchange Office (KEO) in 2019, with support from Graduate School and the Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative (TELI).  The Competition was held in April – July 2019 and was open to all HKU Research Postgraduate (RPg) students. The judging panel included, Professor John Bacon-Shone, Associate Director of KEO, who served as Chairman of the panel, Professor DY Jin, Associate Dean of the Graduate School, Professor Ricky Kwok, Associate Vice-President (Teaching and Learning), and Miss Alice Lee, Associate Professor of the Faculty of Law. The champion will represent HKU in the inaugural International Visualise Your Thesis Competition (online) organised by The University of Melbourne in September – December 2019.
