Launch of Images of Research 2016

Can you capture the essence of your research in an eye-catching image?

Do you want the opportunity to promote your work to thousands of people?

Then the Images of Research competition is for you!

Open to academic and research staff and postgraduate researchers, this popular competition, now in its eighth year and run by the University’s Public Engagement Unit, challenges researchers to explain how their research is making a difference to the world.

Alongside an image of their research, entrants provide a snappy title and a short (150 word) written description explaining their research and the difference that it makes.

This year, the Public Engagement Unit has arranged a free workshop – Does my research make sense to you? Communicating your research in plain English – that will be of use to anyone considering entering the competition. The workshop will run on Thursday 3 March, 9.30am – 12.30pm, and is currently open for registration.

Competition entries will be exhibited at an event  - Engage: Public Engagement in Practice - in The Edge on Wednesday 11 May when judges will select winners, and present prizes, for three categories – Best Image, Best Description, and Best Overall Entry.

All entries will then be displayed in The Edge’s gallery spaces from 11 – 24 May where members of the public will be able to vote for their favourite. The winner of the public vote will also receive a prize.

Deadline for entries is 5pm, Monday 21 March.
