Make an Impact - Pecha Kucha 20 x 20 Student Competition

What can you say in 400 seconds?

Make an Impact is a student video competition being run by the University Student Surveys board.  The goal is to synthesize the UCC results of StudentSurvey.IE to achieve impact based on what students have said, what students think are the strengths and weaknesses of their student experience, and where our students want to see change. 

We want you to put your creative minds to work to produce a short video presentation in the format of a Pecha Kucka.  A Pecha Kucha is a storytelling format where a presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds of commentary each.  It’s designed to be completed in 6 minutes and 40 seconds!  This format keeps presentations concise and fast-paced. 

The submitted videos will be streamed at a Pecha Kucha Night (date to be confirmed) where the winner will be chosen by a selection panel.  Our runner up will be decided via a poll on our Instagram account @UCCStudentSurveys.


There will be a €300 One 4 All voucher for the winner and a €200 One 4 All voucher for our runner-up!


The competition is open to any student currently registered on a programme of study at UCC.

How to Apply

Videos can be submitted by email to by 5pm on Wednesday 31st March 

The only requirements are that your video should follow the style of a Pecha Kucha and be based on the 2020 UCC results of StudentSurvey.IE (link to full report

You may be as creative as you wish, using slides, graphics, presentations, props, or any other relevant means to convey your message.  Best of luck!
