Photo and Video Competition
The AFMS is also running a Photo and Video Competition which aims to highlight the beauty, diversity and applications of fluid mechanics using visual media. This competition is open to all students, with 3 awards ($500, $300 and $200 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd, respectively) for each category (photo and video). Judging criteria will include appeal to the general public, artistic merit, educational value, scientific novelty and promotion of fluid mechanics. Entries will be showcased on the AFMS website and the AFMS social media channels, promoting the students’ work and at the 23AFMC in Sydney this year.
More details on the rules and judging criteria, as well as instructions for submission can be found here. Note that for this competition, entries should be submitted to the AFMS directly via firstname.lastname@example.org.
