Show why your research matters - Images of Research open for entries

Our annual public engagement campaign challenges researchers to choose one image that communicates the impact of their research.

Get involved

Images of Research is a public exhibition in Bath that shows how our research produces real benefits and makes a difference to society.

If you're a researcher at Bath, from postgraduate level up, this is your chance to tell people about your research through an eye-catching image and an associated, simple description.

The image can be any form – photo, drawing, digitally created – but must be captured as an image file.

Your image and description should show why your research matters – the difference that it makes to society, economy, other research or global challenges.

See further guidance about entering.

Submit your entry


A selection of entries will be turned into A1 posters and exhibited at the Engage: Public Engagement in Practice event on campus on Wednesday 3 May, 12.30pm to 4.00pm.

At this event, a judging panel led by Professor Jonathan Knight, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research), will announce winners and those highly commended in three categories:

  • Best Image
  • Best Description
  • Best Overall Entry

We will also display the posters at the University of Bath Festival on Saturday 6 May, where the public will vote for their favourite. After this, the posters will be displayed in The Edge for several weeks.
