It's time for students with a knack for communicating, and budding filmmakers with an interest in science, to pull out their cameras.

There is a prize pool of $10,000 up for grabs to be shared between the winners and their schools, and finalist representatives also win a trip to Sydney for the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes Award Dinner.

Sponsored by the University of Sydney, the prize encourages students to explore a scientific concept, discovery or invention, or test their own scientific hypothesis in a 1-3 minute film.
