What comes next

We'll review your submission and get it ready for posting online on May 5. At that point, we'll publicize that the videos are available for viewing. Our judges will evaluate the videos to determine the award winners. You'll be notified if your video receives an award, and select awardees will be invited to present their video in person at PRD Mainstage on May 11, 2023.

All participants who create a poster are welcome to present it at the in-person Networking Session on May 11 at the Frist Campus Center. PRD will print presenters' posters free of charge and the posters will be for presenters to keep afterwards. This session is open to students, faculty and staff.

All are welcome (students, faculty, staff, family, friends, alumni, and the public) are welcome to attend PRD Mainstage in person or watch it online.
