The Royal Economic Society’s Undergraduate Video Competition is back for a second year. For your chance to win £1000 you have until the 27 July 2018 to send us your 3-minute video focusing on a topical economic issue.
Entries should explore how economics can be used to understand current issues; it should be clear and understandable to non-economists and they should be able to get their point across without relying on economic jargon.
There are no set topics – videos could be on a major issue such as the implications of Brexit, the possibility of a trade war, the importance of diversity & inequality, the productivity gap, or any other economic concepts that students wish to explore.
Individuals or team entries (up to 6 people) are welcome and teams can be formed across different year groups. All entrants must be undergraduates studying at a UK University. The winners will win a £1000 prize and a certificate signed by the RES President. Winning entries may also be shown at future RES events.
If you need some inspiration, take a look at last year’s competition winner from the University of Edinburgh.
