2010 YouTube Your Entomology Contest

Lanham, MD; June 15, 2010 – ESA has begun accepting entries for the 2010 YouTube Your Entomology Video Contest. Following on its success from last year, this contest gives ESA members the opportunity to showcase their talents and creativity through video.

Members may submit entries in four different categories:

  • Discovery (research-based)

  • Instruction (teaching-based)

  • Outreach (extension-based)

  • Open category (anything goes, for the uber-creative entomologist)

The rules for this year's contest are:

    1. Maximum length of videos is three minutes. Videos longer than 3:00 minutes will be disqualified from the contest.

    2. At least one submitter of the video must be an ESA member.

    3. After submitting a video, the submitter must contact the ESA office and designate a category (outreach, instruction, discovery, or open), title, and description for the submission.

All videos will be displayed on the ESA YouTube Channel, and the winning entries will be shown at the Opening Session of the ESA Annual Meeting on Sunday, December 12, 2010 in San Diego. In addition, winners from each category will receive $200.00 and a trophy.

All file formats that are compatible with YouTube will be accepted. To participate in the contest, write to Richard Levine at rlevine@entsoc.org for instructions on how to send us your video.

The deadline is October 15, 2010.
