Visualise Your Thesis

The Visualise Your Thesis competition celebrates research conducted by graduate research students around the world.

Developed by The University of Melbourne, the competition challenges graduate researchers to present their research in a 60-second, eye catching digital display.

Competition submissions are judged on their visual impact and how well the content presents the research.


The Visualise Your Thesis (VYT) competition is open to all Victoria University graduate research candidates, including candidates that have not yet reached confirmation.

Participants must agree for their entry to be displayed on the University of Melbourne’s Visualise Your Thesis website (winning entry only) and on the Victoria University website and related media.

Supervisor approval

You should discuss your Visualise Your Thesis competition participation with your supervisor/advisor.

In particular, you should discuss your entry and potential implications for prior publication, patent and grant applications, and intellectual property (IP) rights and responsibilities. If you are working on team-based projects, collaborative projects with your supervisors, or on ongoing programs in large research centres or labs, you need to be aware of, and respect, the IP rights and responsibilities of all individuals involved.

Supervisor/advisor approval to enter the competition forms part of your submission checklist.
