Geoscience Australia is pleased to announce that the 2012 GeoLogi short film and Top GeoShot photographic competitions are now open.

The GeoLogi short film competition, now in its sixth year, is open to all primary and secondary school students across Australia. The aim is for students to develop a short film that explores the natural world around them, based on this year’s theme of ‘Discovering Geoscience’. Entries close on 24 August 2012, with the winners announced at a special ceremony in Canberra during Earth Science Week (14-20 October 2012).

Entries are also open for the 2012 Top GeoShot photographic competition which anyone can enter. Simply take a photo that captures the essence of Earth science in Australia. There are two categories for this year’s competition: Open and Students up to Year 12. Entries close on 22 September 2012. All entries will be displayed at Geoscience Australia as part of Earth Science Week celebrations, and winners will receive a professionally framed enlargement of their image.

Geoscience Australia has also recently launched a newsletter, Education Centre Updates, to keep Australian teachers up to date with the latest research being undertaken at Geoscience Australia. The newsletter also includes details of upcoming education and public events and competitions designed to get students actively engaged in the Earth sciences.
