Fast Forward Science

Fast Forward Science

A passion for research, for innovative multimedia formats and for communication – the Fast Forward Science competition celebrates not only people who are passionate about science, but also those who can inspire that passion in others.

Who can participate?

  • students,
  • postdocs,
  • vloggers,
  • communicators and 
  • anyone who is enthusiastic about science and research!

What content can be submitted?

YouTube videos, Instagram stories or Twitch stream -  Awards will be given to contributions that show current research, are presented in a comprehensible and target-group-oriented way, and evoke the so-called “aha” effect. A particular challenge is that the contributions should be entertaining beyond the hard facts and ideally manage to engage in a dialogue with the viewers.

Entries must have appeared on a social media platform between 27 July 2020 and 8 February 2022 and be publicly accessible via a link. Find the terms of participation here.

Please note that the content needs to be in German or in English with German subtitles.
