ICES Annual Science Conference 2021

Pitch Pit

Why does your research matter?

Pitch your work to the media and bring it to a wider audience!

​​We will host a “Pitch Pit," where scientists will deliver a 2-minute story idea about their research to journalists. Journalists will ask questions, share their thoughts about the pitched idea, and offer helpful feedback to the presenters. Some research may even be picked up by one of the journalists as a news item!

This session gives you the opportunity to pitch a potential story idea about your work by briefly explaining the main points of your research, why it matters, and why you love it. Then, you will get feedback from the journalists: What do they find most interesting? Can they envision a story about you or your work? What intrigues them enough so they want to know more? Or what doesn't? You will make new connections, and learn what different journalists look for in a science story.

Whether you take the microphone or just observe, this is a fun chance to learn about your colleagues' research, and view it in an entirely new way.
