Video taking and editing is fun - you don’t need to have sophisticated equipment for making impressive videos. It can be done with a flick of your mobile phone! This year, the IMechE's first ever video competition is being launched for our global Young Members.

The theme for this competition is taken from IMechE President-Elect Geoff Baker’s Presidential message: 
“Engineering in Society”. The competition is open to all Young Members - affiliates, associates or any member who has been professionally registered for less than ten years.

Young Members are invited submit a two minute video explaining "what engineering in society means to you in the 21st century". The video could explain how you feel engineering is contributing to society or how it could in the future and how you will develop as a professional to contribute to that vision.

Your video maybe serious, artistic, or fun. Make us want to watch your video and award you the first prize, simply for making a video on your take on engineering.


  • Global winner: £250 + GoPro Video Camera, plus certificate
  • Global runner-up: £175, plus certificate
  • Eight regional winners: £150, plus certificate.


Submissions will be judged by a panel of judges led by President-Elect Geoff Baker and will include professionals from various engineering fields and the media industry. 

The judges will consider the following criteria in making their decision:

  • Creativity: content selection and presentation
  • Engagement: level of public appeal and interest
  • Communication: effectiveness in describing an idea and its feasibility.

 The decision of the judging panel is deemed final.

Deadline: The competition opens now; all entries should be made before the deadline 17th August 2018 23:59 British Standard Time.
