Video contest to feature UC food research

UC students are invited to create videos highlighting current UC research or outreach addressing hunger.
In celebration of World Food Day, UC students are invited to create videos highlighting current UC research and/or programs using the research for sustainable solutions to end global hunger.

The World Food Day Video Challenge is being sponsored by the UC Davis World Food Center, UCANR's Nutrition Policy Institute and the UC Global Food Initiative to raise awareness of the depth and breadth of food-related research across the UC system to reduce hunger and improve health.

The contest is open to all current undergraduate and graduate students in the UC system.

In three minutes or less, the videos should show how UC research relates to:

  • food security
  • food sustainability
  • food science
  • nutrition
  • agriculture

...or other targets within the UN's Sustainable Development Goal #2

 UC academics are encouraged to invite UC students to turn the cameras on their research and outreach. If you're on Twitter, please tweet: Calling @UofCalifornia students! Produce a video on #UCFood research  

First place prize is $1,000 and a trip for up to three team members to attend the Borlaug Dialogue international symposium, which is held in conjunction with the award ceremony for the World Food Prize, in Des Moines, Iowa, in October.

The deadline for submitting videos is 11:59 p.m. PT, Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2016. See contest details at

If you have questions, contact: Amy Beaudreault, World Food Center director of nutrition and health, at or (530) 752-7319.
