Images from the 2014-15 competition

If you haven’t yet had time to take a photo or draw a picture reflecting your research there is still time. The deadline for the Graduate School’s Images of Research competition has been extended to a final deadline of 5pm on 24th November 2015. Just grab your camera or pencil/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. Add a snappy title and 150 word summary and that is all you need to do to participate.

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 24th 2015. Read on for the rules…

cameracropflierIoR 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 minimum 2MB (ideally 4-5MB) 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.

2013 entry from research student Muzafar Hussain, “We simply co-exist, think before you conceive them commodity”

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!
