Format: All participants are initially required to submit one-page executive summary of their research to be reviewed by a panel of experts. Up to 30 outstanding research projects that are original, significant, and relevant for GIF will be selected and their author will be invited to record a 4-minute video pitch between 15 February and 15 March 2023. The recorded videos will be publicly posted (e.g., YouTube) for 30 days to allow world-wide viewing and voting.  The public viewing of the pitches will begin in April 2023.  A GIF expert panel (GIF Jury) will also judge the video pitches based on their creativity, communication effectiveness, and technical quality. The best pitches will be selected based on (1) the GIF Jury and (2) the popular voting.

Prizes: Winners will be selected in both the popular vote category and the GIF Jury category. Winners will be announced in May 2023.
