Show why your research matters - Images of Research

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 work through an eye-catching image and an associated, simple description.

The image can be in 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 it makes to society, economy, other research or global challenges.

The Images of Research competition runs in Semester 2 each year. You can submit entries for this year's competition from 10 am on Monday 29 January 2018 until 5pm on 26 March 2018.

Winning Entries

Winning entries will be announced at the 'Engage: Public Engagement in Practice' event on campus on Wednesday 9 May 2018.

At this event, a judging panel led by Professor Jonathan Knight, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research), will announce the highly commended and winning entries in three categories. The categories are:

  • Best Image
