Could you capture your entire research project in a single image? That is the challenge that the University Graduate School sets our postgraduate researchers at the annual Images of Research exhibition.

How to apply

There are two categories for which prizes will be awarded:

  • One overall winner, as decided by the judging panel. This decision will be based on creativity of the image, ability of the image to communicate the research and quality of the abstract. The prize is a £75 Amazon voucher.
  • One people's choice award, as voted for by audience viewing the exhibition over the course of the Arts & Science Festival week. The prize is a £50 Amazon voucher.
Votes will be collected and the winner announced at the Images of Research event on the 20 March 2014 12.00 - 15.00. Prizes and certificates will be awarded as part of the University Graduate School Awards on the 25 June 2014
