Three minutes. Eleven of Canada's best minds. The power of the spoken word.


The regional competitions are over. The challenge for Canada’s 3MT champion is on.

Voting is open until June 2 for the People’s Choice winner. Click on this link to watch the videos of regional winners as they appeared in front of a live audience. Vote for the graduate student who was able to explain their research and its relevance in a way that you found engaging, clear and inspiring.

Our judges will be choosing a national champion based on those same criteria.

One take.
One static slide.
No props.

Winners will be announced June 12, 2014. In addition to a cash prize, the national champion will attend the CAGS Annual Conference in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

The 3MT concept has had widespread international popularity since it was developed by the University of Queensland in 2008. In Canada, UBC ran the first university based competition in 2011. In 2013, 16 Ontario universities sent representatives to the inaugural Ontario competition. This year's regional competitions were a popular success. And Western University has already been chosen as the location for the 2015 Ontario regional competition.
