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.
It consists of 3 stages, 1- Registration, 2- Submitting videos for registered participants, and 3- Open all presentations for voting, where any Saudi Students in Australia and academics can vote.
