Dust off your cameras, dig out your paintbrushes – Images of Research is back!
It’s time for the call for research images, so why not take part in the Graduate School’s 2015-16 Images of Research competition? If you are a researcher at the University of Northampton, grab your camera or paintbrush and produce a unique image which captures the essence of your research, or an element of your research, in a visual, artistic or photographic way. Top that off with a snappy title and 150 word summary and that is all you need to do to participate.
This years IoR will, again, be a competition, where viewers can vote for their top three favourites. Entries for IoR 2015-16 must be emailed to Simone by November 6th 2015. Read on for the rules…
IoR 2015-16 is open to all researchers, including research students, research staff and supervisors. Images must be unique photos or artwork having been photographed or created by the researcher. Photos must, ideally, be a 4-5 megabyte jpeg or tif file (some mobile phones don’t take images of this quality, so try to use a good digital camera). Along with the image, you need to email (to Simone Apel) a snappy title and a 150 word (max) summary paragraph. Please see the call for images for more guidelines.
The Graduate School launched its first Images of Research in 2013. Justin Lance, Head of Corporate Programmes at NBS said “this is such a wonderfully simple, yet powerful, concept to showcase the diversity and flamboyance of research across the University.” The Images of Research competition 2014-15 sparked off exhibitions around the University and selected images were used in various University publications.
So if you are a research student, supervisor or a member of research staff why not enter into Images of Research in 2015-16? It’s a fabulous way to engage others with your research. If you have any questions please contact Simone in the Graduate School. Good luck!
