We are delighted to invite you to enter your video for the 6th BSGE Video competition.
The BSGE video competition is open for trainee members, consultants and non-trainee (specialty doctors, staff grade doctors and associate specialists) members. Not like in previous years, this time, the Webscom team has worked hard to organise an online platform to submit your video through the BSGE website.
The prize for the trainee winners (there will be 4 of them) is £250 and for Consultants and non-trainees, one year free membership. Ok, it’s not exactly winning the lottery but looks nice on the CV AND don’t forget you can claim CPD points, same as publishing a paper in a journal.
What kind of videos will be considered?
– There is no expectation that exceptional surgical skills. If you think your fellow members will find your video useful and educational, then it is a good video to submit. For example, a well-edited video of a salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy that demonstrates the standard technique and shows the anatomy well, using appropriate graphics and is accompanied by a well-written summary is a perfectly good video to submit. Other examples include: demonstration of simple tips and tricks, complications and their management, challenging or rare cases, anatomical variations, as well as more advanced techniques.
– The description of the video is very important and is considered carefully by the judges. A well-written educational summary (less than 250 words) is likely to increase your score.
– The video must not be more than 10 minutes in length and should be in a commonly used format other than DVD (e.g. mov, .mpg, .wmv etc).
– The video must be completely anonymised, both for the surgeon and the patient. It must only contain views of internal organs.
– Submission of multiple videos by the same person is permitted. (separate application forms need to be filled in for each submitted video)
Date for submission
– Submission deadline- Friday, 28th April 2017 at 5 pm.
– For trainees: There is a cash prize of £250 for 4 winners.
– For non-trainees: One year of free membership
– The winners’ names and their videos will be published on the BSGE website. The length of time videos will remain on the website may vary. Some of the unsuccessful videos may also be published on the video library at the editor’s discretion.
Looking forwards to receiving your videos and good luck!
