The laureate videos will be made available to the media. Two members of each laureate team will be invited to this Final Event, during which the Jury will award the top prizes.

The first prize is a free trip for two to the ESO Paranal Observatory located in the Chilean Andes, one of the foremost astronomical centres in the world and the home of the Very Large Telescope (VLT).

A second and a third prize will also be awarded by the Jury during the Final Event.

We take this opportunity to thank all who sent their video to this international contest. Many of the videos were of a remarkable quality and the Jury had a difficult job!
