Competition alert: Policy Idol 2023

Policy Idol

Do you want to change the world? Do you have an idea for policymakers? Do you think you can convince a group of policy experts in 3 minutes?  

Applications for King’s annual Policy Idol competition are now open! Whether you enter by yourself or as part of a team, you will be given only three minutes to present your ideas to an elite panel of leading figures from the world of politics, academia, and industry, who will assess your pitch on the quality of delivery and the evidence and analysis underpinning it. You can choose from 8 different heats all hosted during February 2023 taking place at the Policy Institute.

Organised by the Policy Institute at King’s College London, Policy Idol sees the best policy ideas selected in a series of heats, where teams with standout pitches from each heat are put through to the final. All finalists receive bespoke training in policy analysis and communications, as well as an opportunity to improve their pitch.
