I hope you all had a great Christmas and a fantastic new year, I would like to remind you of this fantastic opportunity to capture your research into an image and upload it into a Research Photography Competition being launched in February. Is this something that’s of interest to you or could be of interest to others you know? Postgraduates perhaps? Read below for details.
Research photography competition
Can you convey your research through an image? We are looking for academics and postgraduates to tell the story of their research through a photograph, which can be used to inspire current BU undergraduates.
Images will be showcased on the BU website in early 2015, where students and staff alike will be able to vote to choose their favourite images. The top 10 will be displayed across campus in April 2015.
Step 1: Take your photo!
You can be as creative as you like in capturing the essence of your research. You could take a photo of your research in progress, showing how it is developed. Or you could focus on the people involved – the people behind the research, or the people benefitting from it. Unusual or artistic images are also encouraged!
Step 2: Submit your photo
Send your photo, along with a 100 – 200 word description of your research to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th February.
If you need inspiration, take a look at this link for The University of Manchester’s Images of Research competition: http://www.manchesterimagesofresearch.co.uk/winners/
Not only will your image help to inspire the next generation of researchers, but it will also give you an opportunity to find out about other areas of research going on across the university.
