The University of Queensland has a registered trademark over the use of the Three Minute Thesis logo and brand.

The 3MT Branding Guidelines have been developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) to provide participating universities with guidelines for use of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) logo and brand.

The consistent and coordinated use of the 3MT logo and brand is essential to ensure that 3MT is protected and its awareness and prestige enhanced throughout the world. Any institution that does not abide by these guidelines risks damaging the competition's credibility in the marketplace and ultimately dilutes the impact and success of the concept.

Every participating institution is a stakeholder of the brand and as such, it is incumbent upon them to fully understand their responsibilities while ensuring these guidelines are followed. The logos and branding guidelines apply to all faculty, school, institute, centre and administrative divisions in each participating institution.

To request permission to use 3MT information, resources and marketing material please complete the 3MT Materials Permission Form. Following submission of the form, you will immediately be sent a resources and marketing materials pack so that you can get started planning your competition.

Please note, this is NOT a registration to participate in a regional competition, such as the Asia-Pacific 3MT. It is a request to receive resources and permission to use the 3MT brand for your own local event.

Any questions regarding these guidelines should be addressed via email to the Graduate School at The University of Queensland.
