Polar Science put simply!

In celebration of 2021 September Polar Week APECSSA invited submission of short videos to showcase #whatpolarscientistsdo and #howAPECSSAdoscience. Individuals and research groups could showcase their research to the South African public by submitting videos that either 1) explained their research focus, 2) the importance of their research (all in simple non-scientific language), or ) by filming an exciting ‘day in the life of a polar scientist(s)’.  Winning videos were featured on the various APECSSA social media platforms and the 1st two places won their share of over R 2 000 worth in prizes!


The video competition was won by Otto Whitehead, who won the camera logger. The runner up was Sean Evans, who won a backpack. APECSSA thanks the sponsors, Zoolog Solutions and the Antarctic Legacy of South Africa (ALSA) for their generous contribution to the competition.
