Video Contest - sponsored by Wiley
The steering committee of the International Year of Statistics announces a video contest to help launch this worldwide celebration of the positive impact of statistical science. We invite videos of four minutes in length or less that illustrate
- how statistics impacts individual lives, improves society, or in general makes the world a more better place
- how statistical thinking can be brought to bear on important issues of our day
- interesting careers in statistics (tell the world why your job in statistics is a great job, or why it is interesting and fun to be a statistician)
Thanks to John Wiley & Sons, Inc., cash prizes of $250-$1000 will be offered for the best videos, with special prizes for the best videos by a person or persons 18 years of age or less and the best non-English language videos. (Providing us with a written translation or providing English subtitles would be especially helpful.)
Entries will be judged on their statistical content and their entertainment value. All submissions must be the original design and creation of the entrants and must not infringe anyone else's copyright protections. Submissions must be posted on YouTube with a link sent to Tom Short, chair of the Statistics2013 Video Contest review committee, firstname.lastname@example.org, by February 28 , 2013.
Winning and honorable mention videos will be posted on the International Year of Statistics website throughout 2013.
Thank you for helping us to promote statistics around the world during 2013.
Tom Short, Contest Chairperson,
