Images of Research deadline extended to 31st March 2023 – for the last time!

The Graduate School’s Images of Research (IoR) competition’s deadline is extended for a final time to 31st March 2023! If you haven’t yet sent in your submission this is your chance to take part in this exciting opportunity to showcase your research at Waterside’s 5-year anniversary festival.

All researchers (staff or research students) at the University of Northampton are invited to participate. Create a unique image – a painting or a photograph – that captures the essence of your research or captures an element of it in an artistic way. Include a catchy title and a 150 word summary and your entry for Images of Research will be ready for submission. You can find more information on how to apply in the IoR 2022-23 Rules and Guidelines.

As previously, this year’s IoR will consist of two parts – viewers can vote for their top three favourites and an expert judge will pick their top three as well. All you need to do is email your entries (more details below) to Lina El-azhab by the close date of March 31st 2023.

Images of Research is open to all researchers regardless of what stage they are in their research journey so both PGRs and supervisors are eligible to participate. The entry should be an original photograph or an artwork (or a photograph of an artwork) that has been created by the researcher. Crisp photographs of 2-3+ megabytes in a jpeg or tif format are ideal as the images would be put on display in a large size. The entry emailed to Lina should include a catchy title and a 150 word (max) summary paragraph written for a broad audience. More information is available on the IoR 2023 Rules and Guidelines.

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.” Indeed, this is a perfect opportunity for you to express your creativity and engage a broader audience with your research. Every year, Images of Research get displayed around campus and selected images find their way into different University publications.

If you are a researcher we invite you to participate in our 11th Images of Research. If you have any questions please contact Lina in the Graduate School.

We look forward to your entries!
