Images of Research Photography Competition

29 Aug 2011

Snap! Calling all researchers! Using one inspiring photographic image and a caption, can you illustrate your research to the general public? Submit your entries by 19 September (12 noon).

Images of  Research

Can that image show how your research contributes to a sustainable future, how it benefits society, or how your research makes a difference?

We invite the research community at The University of Manchester to take part in the Images of Research Photography Competition. The theme of this year's competition is Sustainability and you can enter your image in one of the following categories:

  • People
  • Environment
  • Culture

The image could be anything that captures attention but must be related to your research. Each submission must include a 150 word abstract including an interesting title, a description of the picture and the benefits of the research. You must ensure the abstract uses plain English and is jargon-free.

The public will decide!

In the lead-up to the Manchester Science Festival in October, shortlisted entries will be exhibited at the John Rylands Library Deansgate and online. The general public will be invited to vote for the best image and associated abstract. 

  • First prize: £250 Amazon vouchers
  • Runners-up per category: £100 Amazon vouchers
  • Highly commended: £50 High Street vouchers

Who can enter?

Open to academics, research fellows, postdoctoral research associates, postgraduate research students and research technical support staff including experimental officers across all disciplines at The University of Manchester. 

Submission details

Submissions close on 19 September 2011 at 12pm (BST). One submission per entrant. So get snapping - we look forward to seeing the wonder of your research!
