Please join us in congratulating the winners of the 2022 GRADflix competition!
On January 31, Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs hosted its fourth annual GRADflix Showcase, a virtual red-carpet event featuring the 25 best one-minute videos made by graduate students to describe their research.
After a tough deliberation, a judging panel comprising Clare Bermingham (Writing and Communication Centre), Chris Peace (Waterloo International), and Tracelyn Cornelius (University Relations) selected four winning videos that best exemplified and communicated the amazing research being carried out by UWaterloo grad students. The audience decided the People’s Choice Award winner.
The winners are:
1st place - $750 prize: Eugenia Dadzie, from the Department of Biology, for her video Microbes and enzymes: sustainable plastic degradation
2nd place - $500 prize: Atiyeh Ahmadi, from the Department of Biology, for her video video Let's go for healthier future!
3rd place - $250 prize: Cameron McGlade-Bouchard, from the School of Environment, Enterprise & Development, for her video Challenging voluntary sustainability standards’ role in filling global regulatory gaps
