International Year of Statistics committee announces video contest


  • Date: 28 September 2012

The committee of the International Year of Statistics is holding a video contest for next year's celebration of how statistics positively influence the world we live in today.

The committee is asking for videos four minutes in length or less that illustrate either how statistics make a difference in every day lives, the enhancements it brings to communities; how statistics can influence topical discussions; or tell about interesting careers using statistics.

'Cash prizes worth up to $1000 will be offered for the best videos, with special prizes for the best videos by a person or persons 18 years of age or less and the best non-English language videos.'

‘Entries will be judged on their statistical content and their entertainment value. All submissions must be the original design and creation of the entrants and must not infringe anyone else’s copyright protections. Submissions must be posted on YouTube with a link sent to Tom Short, chair of the Statistics2013 Video Contest review committee,, by October 31, 2012.'
