The CIHR Institute of Human Development, Child and Youth Health (CIHR-IHDCYH) is pleased to announce the 2019 round of their IHDCYH Talks video competition with a first place prize of $3,000.

It’s time to get creative!

The competition is a unique opportunity to submit a short video (<5 minutes) with an evidence-based message in the area of maternal, reproductive, child and youth health. Each video should be easy-to-understand by a lay audience and present clear evidence-based message(s). It should also contain engaging content demonstrating the positive impact that research can (and does!) have on the health of children, youth and families.

The video does not have to be created specifically for the competition. So long as it hasn’t been submitted to IHDCYH Talks before, any video that has an appropriate message is eligible. Videos can be submitted not only by members of the research community, but also by non-governmental or not-for-profit organizations (including community or charitable organizations), as well as members of the general public who are able to demonstrate a clear, evidence-based message related to IHDCYH's mandate and/or strategic research priorities.

For inspiration, check out the winners from the 201420152016 , 2017 and 2018 competitions on IHDCYH’s website.

Application deadline:  October 15, 2019. More information about eligibility and how to apply is available on ResearchNet.
