CIHR - IHDCYH Talks Video Competition

CIHR's Institute for Human Development Child and Youth Health (IHDCYH) has launched a video competition as a unique funding opportunity to encourage researchers to share their content across diverse audiences.

This opportunity invites researchers from all pillars and career levels to produce a short 3-5 minute video to share their research and ideas in the area of reproductive, child and youth health. The objective of this competition is to encourage the production of videos that present evidence-based research to a lay audience and that incorporate a message designed to have a positive impact on the health of children, youth and families.

From the CIHR website, "The “IHDCYH Talks” competition is an opportunity to profile research within IHDCYH’s mandate to improve knowledge translation and help demonstrate the value of reproductive, child and youth health research in Canada. The objective of this competition is to encourage the production of videos that present evidence-based research to a lay audience and that incorporate a message designed to have a positive impact on the health of children, youth and families.

Successful videos will be posted on CIHR and IHDCYH social media and other communications materials. It is important that the content be engaging, easily understood and accessible to a lay audience."
