Tell the world about your research

If you're a CRC PhD student or early career researcher, you can win a great cash prize through the CRC Association’s Early Career Researcher Showcase, sponsored by CQUniversity.

The annual competition is open to early career researchers across all CRCs, with the definition of early career researcher covering two years prior to PhD submission, and five years post-PhD submission. Entry is via a 30 second video about your research.

The CRCA will short-list five finalists, who will win a trip to Sydney and give a five-minute presentation on the first day of the annual CRCA conference, 14 May 2018. Those from Sydney will receive a $500 travel voucher.

All five finalists win $1,000 each. The winner, voted by the audience, will win an additional $5,000. 

Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC PhD students and early career researchers who would like to enter should contact Nathan Maddock on by 19 January 2018. 

Last year's winning videos can be found on the CRCA website.
