Get your PhD on Television!*

4 Jul

Ever wanted to see your PhD be brought to life on TV? (*PHD TV, that is…)

If you’re currently working on your thesis, or have just completed one, and still haven’t heard of PHD comics, we assume you’re old school and still using a type writer. Here at Maynooth Neuro Lab, we advise a heavy dose of PHD comics, several times a day, 7 days a week (if you’ve forgotten to take your dose today, click here, stat!).

Now Jorge Cham, illustrator, animator and creator of PHD Comics has set up a PHDtv 2 Minute Thesis Contest! All you have to do is record yourself explaining your thesis in 2 minutes or less, and upload it to the website to be in with a chance to win. Selections of each entry will be posted on the website where the public will vote for their favourites (bonus points for creativity). Winners will have their audio clip animated by Jorge Cham and featured on the PHDtv website, with cool merchandise goodies to be won too!

Voting will open on August 6th and close on Aug 20th. The 1st place winning entry will be featured first in September, followed by other winning entries being released every moth for the academic year 2012/2013.

See below for an explanation of the competition by Jorge Cham himself, and click here for the rules of the competition and how to apply.
