The Society for Conceptual Logistics in Communication Research is proud to announce the 2013 Student Showcase for Visualizing Communication Concepts. Entering is easy and fun. Any undergraduate or graduate student can submit an entry.
Students can create and submit original images and videos that visualize a specific concept in communication studies. This competition is an excellent opportunity to augment your communication courses or offer extra credit.
- The video or image should clearly explicate a single concept in communication studies. This concept can be drawn from any "field" of research so long as it pertains to studying human communication. The image or video should translate the concept to the visual medium in such a way as to enhance our understanding or better explain the concept, especially for fellow students who may be new to the concept.
- Videos must be submitted to YouTube in 720 or 1080 resolution and be 3-5 minutes long. Videos can be live action or animations. They cannot be interactive.
- Images must be >200dpi and at least 8 inches squared (minimum 8"x8" 200dpi) submitted as a JPEG or PNG file.
- There is no cost to participate.
- Students must be currently enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student.
- Students may work in teams of no more than three people.
- By submitting students are certifying that the work is their own creative endeavor, the result of their own effort, and theirs to submit legally.
- Students must submit their full and real name along with their institution to earn credit. Student names will be made public alongside their work.
- All submissions are due no later than NOON (Central USA) on December 13, 2013 to this site. No late submissions will be accepted.

- In addition, online voters will be able to vote for an overall Crowd Favorite Blue Ribbon.

Submissions do not necessarily need to incorporate all details in the concept and should instead focus on the most central or important.

- Winning students will receive phsical awards by mail after the results are announced online.
