The deadline for sending applications to the video and research pitches contests of the Compostela Group of Universities is extended until 1 June 2020. 

The Compostela Group of Universities (CGU) has decided to reactivate the submission of applications for the 2020 call for its video and research pitches contests, after deciding to temporarily suspend this process due to the exceptional provisions adopted internationally because of the COVID-19.

The deadline for sending applications is 1 June 2020 for both contests, through which the CGU aims to give visibility to the audiovisual creation and research work developed by the university community of its network.

The updated guidelines for these contests are available on the webpages of the IX International Video Contest and the IV Research Pitches Contest, as well as the template for the letter of support that students and researchers interested in participating must submit along with their applications. There they will find all the information about the requirements that the videos must meet and the list of documentation to be sent, as well as the link for the online form.

CGU contest’s prizes

The IX International Video Contest awards two prizes each year, which recognise the audiovisual talent and creativity of students from the member universities. The first and second prizes are 1,000 and 400 euros gross amount.

As for the IV Research Pitch Contest, it also recognises every year those researchers with the ability to adapt their message to a general audience and transmit the relevance of their work and their contribution to society. The three winners receive prizes of a gross economic amount of 1,000 euros, 600 euros and 300 euros.

Besides, the awarded students and researchers receive a diploma of recognition and their videos are disseminated on the main communication platforms of the GCU.
