‘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 in the Research Photography Competition.
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.
Thousands of BU students, staff and members of the public voted for their favourite images, and for one day only, we gave these voters the chance to view an exhibition of all submissions. The exhibition was held in Kimmeridge House, and to celebrate the successes of the competition, there were talks from the winner, Sarah Hambidge, and runners up, Rosa Spencer Tansley and Sulaf Assi, Stephanie Farrant, Robert Moore and Jordan Thomas.
