The Ocean 180 Video Challenge is entering its second year, offering an opportunity for ocean scientists to practice their communication and presentation skills. A total of $9,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to ocean scientists who best communicate their research through film.

Sponsored by the Florida Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE Florida) and funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation, Ocean 180 challenges scientists to communicate and share the meaning, significance, and relevance of their research with a broader audience.

To enter, ocean scientists are asked to produce a 3-minute video abstract summarizing a recent publication. Scientists at any career stage, including graduate and undergraduate students are eligible to participate.

Submissions will ultimately be viewed and evaluated by thousands of middle school students from around the world. In 2014, during Ocean 180's inaugural year, entries were seen by over 30,000 students participating as judges in 13 countries. This is a fantastic way to develop your communication skills and make a broader impact with your research.

Submissions for the 2015 Ocean 180 Video Challenge will be accepted from October 1-December 1, 2014.
