Postdocs who are working on built environment, land use or planning topics are invited to create a 2-minute video to explain the significance of their research and articulate a ‘big picture’ view of its potential contribution. Each participant's video should explain clearly, succinctly and creatively the significance of their research. By engaging in this video challenge, participants will improve their communication skills and enhance the visibility of their work.

Organised by Buildings & Cities journal and ARL, this ‘video challenge’ celebrates a diversity of built environment research from postdocs in many countries and built environment disciplines. The theme of the 2023 video challenge is “GRAND CHALLENGES” - the difficult but key problems that societies face. Collectively, these videos will illustrate the importance of emerging built environment research to civil society and/or industry. It must be aimed at the general public.

It’s free. There is no fee to enter and there are cash prizes, recognition and kudos.
The deadline for video submission is 17 OCTOBER 2023 noon (GMT / UTC). It takes some time to prepare and make a video – start now to be sure to have enough time to create your video.
