What is Snap! Your Doctorate?

Snap! Your Doctorate gives doctoral researchers the chance to tell people about their research through an eye-catching image and an associated, simple description. The image can be any form – a photo, drawing, illustration, digitally created image, etc – but must be captured as an image file.

Images and descriptions should show why the research matters – the difference that it makes to society, economy and other research or global challenges.*
