Entering the online heat

Once you've registered your interest in competing, you'll be asked to complete an application form explaining why you're unable to attend a physical heat. We'll check your eligibility and let you know whether you can compete in the online heat.

If successful you'll need to create your video.

Video creation

The format of your video entry is up to you. You might want to get someone to film you presenting your presentation or you might use a screen capture tool to capture your slides, voiceover and webcam on a computer.

Please don't edit your video (e.g. add music soundtracks or animation effects, etc.). The videos should reflect the participant's presentation style and any evidence of editing will result in disqualification.

Videos will not be judged on the quality of the video (resolution, editing, etc.) but on the presentation skills of the presenter and the technical content of the presentation only.

Prizes for online heat

£150 for the winner
£100 for the runner up
