Written by Abigail Sawyer

That’s right – the 2019 BioTechniques Award for Song Parody of the Year has landed. So, put your pipettes down and start penciling your lab lyrics.

Do you think you have what it takes to win the Song Parody Award this year? Well, we want to see inventive, original science song parodies taking center-stage on our website. So, put your pipettes down and start penciling your lab lyrics.

Not familiar with the BioTechniques Award for Song Parody of the Year? It is an annual award that searches out the best science song parody video of the previous year. The award accepts nominations from videos that have either been produced originally for the award, or have been published online at any point in the year prior to the award nominations going live.

The nominated videos will be hosted on the BioTechniques’ website where visitors can then vote for their favorite parody. The creators of the parody with the most votes will be interviewed for a feature that is published on BioTechniques and have the great honor of winning the Science Parody Award.

Submissions will be open from today (see the nomination form below) – Friday 10 May 2019 – and will close on Friday 7 June 2019. Nominations will then be shortlisted and opened to a public vote on Monday 10 June 2019. You’ll then have 2 weeks to vote vote vote for your favorite parody, with voting closing on Monday 24 June 2019.
