Dust off your cameras, dig out your sketchbook – Images of Research is back in 2022!

2021 winner, Jonathan Francis, with “The reliability of manual ultrasonics in detecting internal corrosion in Carbon Steel pipework”

The Graduate School’s Images of Research (IoR) competition is back! The Call for Images is now open, so, if you are a researcher (staff or research student) at the University of Northampton, why not take part? Pick up 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. See the IoR 2021-22 Rules and Guidelines for how to apply.

This year’s IoR will, again, be a double competition, where viewers can vote for their top three favourites and an expert judge will also choose their top three. Entries (see below) must be emailed to Simone Apel by the extended close date of March 31st 2022.

“Fire and Fury” Prof Nick Petford with G K Gillmore, D Wertheim, I M McIntosh and I Gill. From the 2021 competition.

IoR is open to all researchers, including PGRs & supervisors – no matter how experienced. Images must be unique photos or artwork having been photographed or created by the researcher. Photos must, ideally, be a 2-3+ 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 IoR 2021 Rules and Guidelines for more information.

The Graduate School launched its first Images of Research in 2013. Justin Lance, then Head of Corporate Programmes at NBS said of it “this is such a wonderfully simple, yet powerful, concept to showcase the diversity and flamboyance of research across the University.” Every year, Images of Research travels around the University on display and selected images are used in various University publications.

So if you are a researcher why not enter into our 10th Images of Research? 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!
