About Saudi Idol

To provide an opportunity for Saudi students to showcase their thesis, enhance their presentation skills and gain experience to participate in future similar competitions.

A 3-minute competition where PhD candidates shall professionally present a snapshot about their thesis in a 3 minutes video for a non-specialist audience aiming at winning the competition.

A 3-minute unassisted speech where presenters shall talk without tech-support i.e. PowerPoint, sound effects, video…etc. The environment will be just like “Ted talk” where only one picture will display as a background with no scientific content. Participants are requested to submit a 3 minutes video after registration.
