Project Mars invites college students and early career professionals to create and visualize what NASA’s deep space expedition may look like. Be it NASA’s deep space endeavours, including Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System rocket or the deep space gateaway concept. You need to be able to visualise it and give your interpretation of the same.
The entry deadline is August 31, 2018.
So, what do you have to create and visualise – When astronauts venture to Mars, what will they see? How will they feel? What will they experience? What will they do?
This is an international competition open to all those who are college students and early career professionals.
NASA is leading the next steps of human space exploration in the vicinity of the Moon and on toward Mars.
Two Ways To Participate in Project Mars
SHOOT A FILM
Bring your interpretation of NASA’s work to send humans to Mars. You need to bring this interpretation to life through breathtaking cinematography, amazing animations and state-of-the-art special effects.
You have up to 5 minutes to tell an inspiring story about a 9-month trek to the Red Planet.
So captivating creativity is a must for Project Mars!
The winning short film will be selected by a team of film and graphic design industry judges including Gareth Edwards, director of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
MAKE A POSTER
Recruit brave astronauts for a daring mission, promote space tourism for the adventurous, or depict the next generation of space systems that will transport new world explorers to Mars.
The sky is not the limit when you design a poster for the deep space journey.
So reach out to infinity and beyond for creative ideas.
The winning poster will be selected by a team of film and graphic design industry judges including Joshua Grossberg, creative director of McCann New York.
TELL YOUR STORY OF NASA’S PLANS FOR MARS!
In collaboration with NASA, SciArt Exchange presents Project Mars Competition: your chance to tell the story of human exploration of deep space.
NASA’s exploration missions will help build a flexible, reusable and sustainable infrastructure that will last multiple decades and support missions of increasing complexity to enable missions to Mars.

(Orion is NASA’s new spacecraft that will take astronauts to the Moon and beyond to make new discoveries about our solar system and unlock the mysteries of our own planet Earth. Orion will launch from a modernized Kennedy Space Center in Florida on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System. It is the most powerful rocket in the world, capable of launching and carrying habitation, propulsion and logistics modules for a proposed deep space gateway, as well as landers, rovers and other surface systems that will be needed for a Martian voyage.)
