That’s a wrap! UoM Visualise Your Thesis Competition 2019

Visualise Your Thesis challenged graduate researchers to present their research in a 60 second, eye-catching digital display. Using a pre-supplied template, entrants were tasked with developing a striking looped presentation to encapsulate their research projects in short, engaging, digital narratives.

The August 28 awards event officially marked the end of Melbourne University’s 2019 local competition heat. Entries this year were all brilliant – judges Rose Hiscock (Director, Science Gallery Melbourne), Alana Pirrone (Design and Communications Officer, Melbourne School of Population & Global Health) and Simon Clews (Director, Melbourne Engagement Lab) had a difficult decision upon them.

A big congratulations to all of our 2019 competition winners!
