Бонус ұпай қалай жинауға болады?

Қатысушылардың Instagram желісіндегі парақшасында SPT олимпиадасы туралы қызықты әрі креатив пост жариялау арқылы 1-ден 5-ке дейін бонус ұпайға ие болу мүмкіндігі бар. Пост сурет, мәтін немесе видео сияқты кез келген форматта бола алады.

Шығармашылық шектеу жоқ, қиялыңа ерік бер!
Арманыңды жаз, әңгіме құрастыр, видео түсір, достарыңа мотивация бер,  оларды да қатысуға шақыр!

Бұл – тіпті қосымша 0,5 ұпайдың грант иесі атануда шешуші рөл атқара алатын тұсы. Сондықтан мұндай тамаша мүмкіндікті міндетті түрде пайдалануға кеңес береміз.

Шарттары:

  • Қызықты және креативті пост жариялау (мәтін 50 cөзден кем емес, қатысышының өз атынан жазылады)
  • Cуретте @sdukz белгілеу (tag)
  • Хэштег – #spt2020 #sdukz
  • Пост соңында аты-жөнін, кластер мен ЖСН соңғы 6 цифрін хэштег арқылы көрсету (мысалы, Ахметов Айбек, #Кластер5, #123456).
  • Қатысушы парақшасы 10 наурызға дейін ашық болуы керек.

*Посттарды олимпиада ұйымдастырушылары былай бағалайды (жалпы ереже):

▫️1 ұпай:
— Пост жарияланған, талаптарға сай;
▫️2 ұпай:
— Мәтіні өте жақсы жазылған пост;
▫️3 ұпай:
— сапалы түсірілген және монтаждалған видео-пост;
▫️4 және 5 ұпай:
— Көп қаралым жинаған, лайк пен комментарий саны көп сапалы пост. 

Алайда баға беруші посттың сапасына көбірек қарайды. Яғни, тек қана мәтінмен-ақ +5 балл алу мүмкіндігі де бар. Немесе керісінше, көп лайк жинаған пост сапасыз болғандықтан 1 ұпай ғана жинауы мүмкін.

Посттар онлайн тіркелу аяқталғанға дейін қабылданады.

Как заработать бонусные баллы?

Участники имеют возможность заработать от 1 до 5 бонусных баллов, написав интересный и креативный пост об олимпиаде SPT на своей странице в Instagram. Пост может быть в любом формате, как текст, фото или видео.

Творчеству нет предела, дай волю своим фантазиям!
Напиши мечту, сочини рассказ, сними видео, мотивируй своих друзей, пригласи их участвовать вместе!

Это тот самый момент, когда даже 0,5 баллов решают, достоин ты гранта или нет. Поэтому очень советуем воспользоваться этой  возможностью.

Условия:

  • Опубликовать интересный и креативный пост (с текстом не менее 50 слов, от имени участника)
  • Отметить @sdukz на фото (tag)
  • Хэштег #spt2020 #sdukz
  • Указать в посте ФИО, кластер и последние 6 цифр своего ИИН через хэштег (например, Ахметов Айбек, #кластер2, #123456.
  • Страница участника должна быть открытой до 10 марта.

Посты оцениваются организаторами олимпиады таким образом:

▫️1 балл:
— есть пост, выполнены все условия;
▫️2 балла:
— пост с хорошо написанным текстом;
▫️3 балла:
— интересный пост с качественно снятым и смонтированным видео;
▫️4 и 5 баллов:
— качественные посты с хорошим охватом, количеством лайков и комментариев.

Оценивая посты, организаторы в первую очередь обращают внимание на качество поста. То есть, даже с текстом можно получить максимальный балл. Или наоборот, посты которые набрали тысячи лайкав, могут получить только 1 балл из за плохого качества.

Посты принимаются до завершения онлайн регистрации.

«Болашақ» халықаралық стипендиясының екі дүркін иегері. 2011 жылы Англияның Newcastle университетінің магистратурасын Халықаралық мультимедиалық журналистика мамандығы бойынша бітірген. Ал 2021 жылдың наурыз айында Шотландияның Glasgow университетінде үш жылдан астам уақыт бойы жазған докторлық диссертациясын мерзімінен бұрын сәтті қорғап шықты. 1 айдан кейін оған Медиа және мәдени саясат мамандығы бойынша ресми түрде Философия докторы ғылыми атағы берілді. Dr Әсел негізі 1451 жылы қаланған университеттің Мәдени саясатты зерттеу орталығында (Centre for Cultural Policy Research) қызмет еткен. Аты әлемге әйгілі, nationalism ұғымының Ұлыбританияда негізін қалаушылардың бірі Эрнест Геллнерден тәлім алған Филип Слесинджердің шәкірті. Сондай-ақ, ол  магистратура студенттеріне Зерттеу әдістері (Research Methods) пәнінен дәріс оқып, Қазақстаннан тұңғыш рет PhD дәрежесін иеленген маман атанады. 

Докторлық диссертациясы, «Қазақ киносы және ұлт: сыни талдау» тақырыбы, ұлт құрылысы (nation building)  тәсілімдемесі арқылы зерттелген (Kazakh cinema and the nation: a critical analysis – Enlighten: Theses (gla.ac.uk)). Ғылыми еңбекте ол қазақ киносына британ әлеуметтанушы Энтони Смиттің энтосимволизм концепциясы бойынша талдау жасап, қазақ халқының ұлт болып қалыптасуына атажұрттық фильмдердің әсері қаншалықты деген сұраққа жан-жақты жауап беруге ұмтылады. 

Диссертацияның жаңалығы – бұл отандық Еуразия Халықаралық  кинофестивалін академиялық тұрғыдан алғаш рет зерттеп, ғылымның фильм фестивальдері (film festival studies) атты жаңа саласына EurIFF ұғымын тұңғыш рет енгізді (бұл турасында ағылшын тілді ғылымда бір де бір диссертацияны айтағанның өзінде,  ғылыми орта назар аударарлық мақала да жоқтың қасы). Сонымен қатар, осы саланы зерттеп жүрген әлем зерттеушілеріне қазақ киносын, Қазақстанның халықаралық фестивалін ғылыми еңбегі арқылы танымалдандырды. 

Бұған дейін Әсел Қамза «Хабар» арнасында 2006-2010 жж. аралығында  «Азамат» жастар бағдарламасының редакторы, кейіннен продюсері, «Біз айтсақ…» ток-шоуының шеф-редакторы, қазақ және орыс тілінде хабар таратқан «Бизнес мекен» таңғы бағдарламасының сценарисі қызметін атқарып, ондаған тікелей эфирлерде жұмыс жасап, практик-журналист ретінде тәжірибесін толықтырды. Оның ішінде 2008-2009 жылдары «Қазақстанда жасалған» атты отандық өндірушілерді қолдау мақсатында ашылған тележобаның сценарист-редакторы әрі жүргізушісі болып жұмыс істеген. 2011-2014 жылдары «Қазақстан темір жолы» ҰК» АҚ Ішкі протокол және бұқарамен байланыс департаментінде маман деңгейінен бастап, жарнама бөлімінің бастығы позициясына дейін көтеріліп, 160 000-нан астам қызметкері бар  ұлттық компанияның  PR стратегиясын дамытып, үйлестіруге үлес қосқан. 

Сулейман Демирель Университетінде бакалавриат және магистратура шәкірттеріне қазақ және ағылшын тілдерінде Масс коммуникация теориясы, Зерттеу әдістері, Масс коммуникациядағы зерттеу әдістері, Медиа Социология және Бейне композиция пәндерінен сабақ береді. Ұлыбританияда 5 жылға жуық уақыт ішінде жинаған бүкіл өнегесі мен бар тәжірибесін күнделікті дәрісінде пайдалануға тырысады. Студенттеріне сыни ойлауға, сындарлы пікір білдіруге жөн сілтейді. Ғылыми жұмыс жазған кезде, кеңестік кезден келе жатқан дәстүрлі жүйе бойынша, тек ғылыми жетекшінің жөн-жобасын ғана басшылыққа алуды ғана үйретпей, шын мәнінде бүкіл жауапкершілікті өз мойнына алуға, өз бетінше, еркін және тәуелсіз жұмыс істеуге дағдыландырады. 

Мақалалары отандық ғылыми журналдарда жарық көрген. Қазіргі таңда толерантты журналистика, автобиографиялық фильмдерге қатысты зерттеу жұмыстарымен айналысады. 

Өмірлік ұстанымы – талап, сапа, нәтиже!
