SciCast 2012 Announcement


Over the past few weeks, we’ve been getting emails asking us about SciCast 2012 and we think it’s time to announce the sad news: there will be no SciCast Awards 2012.

Although we’ve had some extremely gratifying interest in SciCast, unfortunately it hasn’t been enough to fund SciCast 2012. However, we’ll bring you word of regional competitions inspired by SciCast as we hear confirmation: so far Richmond and North Somerset are still happening, with other possible events in Wales, Durham, and elsewhere.

We want to warmly thank the hundreds of people who’ve submitted films to SciCast this year and over the last five years. You’ve set a tremendous standard each year, and every film we’ve received has helped ensure that our winners are truly worthy.

Thanks again and huge congratulations to all of you!

We really wanted to enter this year! Can you let me know of any regionals in Kent or SE London (or Sussex/Surrey?)

Man, this sucks! Scicast is so awesome... Hopefully you'll get funding for 2013!

I've just found SciCast and am extremely disappointed that the film competition has stopped as I've taken on the Science G and T co-ordiantion in our school and would have loved to enter a film. I think we might still try to make a film anyway!

Please let me know if a new competion starts up.
