Snap! Calling All Researchers! Using a single inspiring photographic image and short description can you illustrate your research to the general public? Can that image show how your research contributes to a sustainable future, how it benefits society, or how your research makes a difference?
Although the Science Festival is aimed at, well, scientists, the photography competition is open to all researchers in all disciplines.
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 Visions of Sustainability and you can enter your image in one of the following categories: People, Environment, or 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.
Prizes: 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 19 September 2011, 12pm (BST). One submission per entrant.
So get snapping, we look forward to seeing the wonder of your research. Find out how to enter and see the full terms and conditions at:
