We understand that plans change, and that you might no longer be able to make it to a workshop or an event you thought you would like to attend. The aim of the policy is not to discourage you from registering for events you might be interested in.

The Graduate School’s Images of Research (IoR) competition returns! All researchers (staff or research students) at the University of Northampton are invited to participate as the Call for Images is open. 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 make sure that your entries follow the Rules and Guidelines linked above and email them to Lina El-azhab by the close date of January 9th 2023.

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.

Browse through the Images of Research 2022 Brochure to have a look at last year’s entries.

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!
