Research Photography Competition – Voting is open !

Voting for the Research Photography Competition is now open!  Over the last few weeks, our staff and students have been using their creativity and photography skills to capture their research in a single image.  We’ve had a fantastic response and the entries submitted reflect the depth and breadth of research going on at BU.  The Care of Kin by Jill Davey to The Heart of a Fly by Paul Hartley, the photos give a glimpse into the world of research at BU.

Now we need your help to pick a winner.  You can vote either through our research website or by liking your favourite image on the Bournemouth University Facebook page.

Voting will close on 25 January, with winners announced at an event in the Atrium Art Gallery on 4th February.  All of the images will be displayed in the Gallery until Tuesday 16th February, so do drop and take a look.

Research Photography Competition

Hello !

The entries to this year’s Research Photography Competition are still open for a short time !

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.

All submitted images will be showcased on the BU website late 2015, where staff and students will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite image/s. An exhibition will also be displayed in the Atrium Art Gallery during February 2016. Winners will then be announced during an Awards Ceremony which will take place on Thursday 4 February 2016.

How to enter the competition:

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 encouraged!

Step 2: Submit your photo

Submit your photo to the research email inbox, along with a 100–200 word description of your research by the 13th of January 2016.

Need inspiration?

Then take a look at our regular ‘Photo of the Week’, where you can read about the research behind the images or visit the Research Photography Competition 2015 webpages which highlight last year’s Research Photography Competition entries.

User training videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDN8NHKF8qCDkTyiMNejFBvT6gDbr5__G

They employed a professional actress to make the videos and if you are able to guess the voice then they are offering a prize (I don’t know what it is).  If you think you know who it is then email me (jgarrad@bournemouth.ac.uk) by 30th September and I’ll forward on the responses to see if anyone is correct (if more than one guesses correctly then the prize will go to the first person to email me).

Good luck!
