AMP's Amplify Ignite competition (formerly Bright Sparks) is a one-night-only, PhD pitch night, where twenty exceptional PhD students from across the country battle it out to win a grand prize of $5,000 in research funding.

Ignite provides student researchers with the opportunity to work with a professional performance coach, and experience the rush and spontaneity of pitching based on the theme “The edge of the possible”.

With just 150 seconds to pitch a cutting edge idea to a live audience and judging panel of senior executives, Ignite is one of the most popular events on the Amplify calendar; a  fascinating evening of intellectual theatre that is not to be missed.
