Fast Forward Science Competition, deadline 8 Feb 2022

You have a passion for research, innovative multimedia formats and communication? Then you should consider taking part at the Fast Forward Science competition! The competition, which is equipped with a total of €23.000, is a joint project of Wissenschaft im Dialog and the Stifterverband and has taken place annually since 2013.

Since online formats are constantly changing, and have become increasingly diverse in recent years, submissions can now be published not only on YouTube, but also on other social media channels such as Instagram, TikTok, or Twitch. In addition, there are new categories in which other creative online-formats and audio contributions can be submitted. Non-German-language science videos can apply for the newly created international award.


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. Sounds exciting? Then sit yourself in front of or behind your camera and get started!

Deadline: 8 February 2022

The awards ceremony will take place in June 2022 at the SILBERSALZ Festival in Halle.
