FameLab is the exciting competition for young researchers that is conquering the world of science communication. FameLab is not just another talent show for scientists: its magic formula truly helps real scientists show off their communication skills. Successful candidates will have to impress the judges by giving an original and entertaining 3-minute talk. The contestants are judged on the content, clarity and charisma of their talks. The result is an amazing collection of speeches that are inspiring, educational and accurate, despite their brevity.

CERN, which was already a partner in the Swiss and French competitions, is now launching its own event. In order to offer further opportunities for you to become a star of science communication, CERN is organising the first Physics FameLab, to be held on 21 May at CERN. It is open to young researchers (up to 35 years of age) with a valid CERN account. The winner of the competition will go on to participate in the international final that will be held during the 2015 Cheltenham Science Festival.

Enter the competition now! Read the rules, record a video (3 minutes long maximum!) of your talk and send its URL to the organisers before 5 April 2015. The best videos will be selected to participate in the CERN event. Visit the website for more detailed information.
