Research Photography Competition

Following on from last year’s successful research photo competition we are now seeking entries for our 2016 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.

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, along with a 100–200 word description of your research by Friday 11 December 2015.

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.

Why take part?

Not only will your image help to inspire the next generation of researchers, it will also highlight all the fantastic research taking place across the university.

Should you have any queries, please contact Oliver Cooke in our Research & Knowledge Exchange Office (RKEO).

We look forward to receiving your entry.
