Rules for UAlberta 3MT Participants

 

  1.  A single static PowerPoint slide is permitted (no slide transitions, animations or 'movement' of any description, the slide is to be presented from the beginning of the oration). Please note that using a slide is optional as the presentation focus is on your oration skills. Images used in the slide must be your own, or you must have permission from the owner of the photo(s) and provide proper credit(s).
  2. No additional electronic media (e.g. sound and video files) are permitted.
  3. No additional props (e.g. costumes, musical instruments, laboratory equipment) are permitted. 
  4. Presentations are limited to 3 minutes maximum.
  5. Presentations that go over 3 minutes will have marks removed in the heats, and will be disqualified in the final.
  6. Presentations are to be spoken word (e.g. no poems, raps or songs).
  7. Presentations must be based on research directly related to the student’s graduate program thesis. Research performed for employment should not be presented.
  8. Presentations are to commence from the stage.
  9. Presentations are considered to have commenced when a presenter starts their presentation through movement or speech.
  10. Presenters must agree to be video-taped for the Final only.
  11. The decision of the adjudicating panel is final.
