The Union of Students in Ireland is running the Why Research Matters video competition 2022.

The Union of Students in Ireland promotes the interests of students studying in third level colleges and universities.

This competition aims to showcase the varied and high-quality work being undertaken by postgraduate researchers across the island.

If you are one of Ireland’s postgraduate research community you can take part by producing a short video presentation about your research, and why it matters.

The deadline for submissions is September 10th, with winners to be announced by September 30th

The overall winner stands will receive prize of €500. The judging panel will also be selecting two runners-up for most creative video and most informative video, with the winners of each winning prizes of €250, respectively. 

How to Apply 

To participate create a video about the research that you are doing, discussing why you are doing this research, what you have learned or hope to learn, and why you think this research matters. Upon completion of your video, upload it to your preferred hosting service (e.g., YouTube) and then fill out this short application form to enter. Do not forget to include the link to your video in the appropriate section. 

Videos should aim to be three minutes in length and no more than five minutes. The only requirements are that you state your name, institution, and funding source (if any) on video before you start your presentation and explain, by whatever means you chose, why your research matters.
