Images of Research 2012 - the winners

The winners of the 2012 Images of Research competition have been chosen following a successful public exhibition at The Octagon in Bath last weekend.

The popular exhibition, organised by the Researcher Development Unit and sponsored by the University’s EPSRC Knowledge Transfer Account, aims to explain research that takes place at the University through the use of eye-catching images. 

This year the theme of the exhibition was Research in Your World and entrants were set the challenge of showing images that depict research that has relevance to everyone’s world.  

They were asked to do this by explaining how their research relates to the world we know – this could be in an obvious way or indirectly through the society or environment in which we live. 

The entries were judged at a preview evening in 4West by Professor Jane Millar, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research, the University’s Director of Marketing & Communications Tim Kaner and Sophie Duncan, Deputy Director of the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE).

All of the entries were then exhibited in The Octagon in Milsom Place, attracting more than 400 visitors who were invited to vote for their favourite.

The winners were:

Judges choices:

Best Overall - Dr Melina Freitag, Dept Mathematical Sciences

Best Image – Hannah Family, Dept Pharmacy & Pharmacology

Best Abstract – Dr Richard Burke, Dept of Mechanical Engineering

Public vote:

First place – Dr Melina Freitag, Dept Mathematical Sciences

Second place - Tori Hammond, Dept Biology & Biochemistry

The exhibition will be on show on Level 2 of the University library from 7 to 21 June.
