‘Can you tell the story of your research in a single image?’ That’s the challenge we set BU’s academics and postgraduates earlier this year, and the overwhelming response saw researchers from all across the university downing tools to take up their cameras and think of unusual ways to illustrate their research. The resulting images demonstrate not just the creativity of our academics and postgraduates, but also the fascinating range of research taking place at BU.
Researchers from all across the university, working in areas as diverse as dementia, archaeology, kayaking and 3D printing submitted images to the competition.
We saw an overwhelming amount of votes via Facebook and the research website and now it is time to find out who has won? Who has finished as runners up? And give you the opportunity to view some of your favourite images as an exhibition.
On 28th April 2pm-4pm in Kimmeridge House, K101 will be open to all students and staff as the winner of the competition will be giving a 20 minute talk on their image and the research behind that image. On top of that there will be an exhibition of all of your favourite images for you to come and find out more about. So come along and grab yourself a cup of tea or coffee, a piece of cake and view some of the excellent images from the Research Photography Competition.
We look forward to seeing you there!
