Photo competition launched to build connections between scientists and researchers in the UK and Canada

Oct. 19, 2015

Contest closes November 2, 2015 at 12:00 EST

Can you creatively communicate your research with just one photo, a snappy title and a short description?

Can you capture the public’s interest, raise their curiosity, or get them thinking about collaboration and scientific research in a different way?

Are you interested in cooperation in your area of research between the UK & Canada?

The British High Commission in Ottawa invites the research community from the UK and Canada to take part in the first Images of Research photographic competition. Whether you work in the physical, medical, biological, social sciences or engineering, we want you to share your work with the wider world.

We are seeking original photographs illustrating research in the fields of:

  • energy & environment
  • life sciences & medical research
  • advanced engineering & aerospace
  • agriculture
  • social innovation

The winning entry will be the image that shares the wonder, beauty and curiosity of what you do, why you do it and how potential UK-Canada cooperation could impact our countries and make a difference.

The top two images will be awarded economy airfare and accommodation (up to £1000) for one researcher’s travel either to or from the UK to pursue their research cooperation. The UK Science & Innovation Network will help facilitate networking opportunities and connections for you during your visit. Travel must be completed before March 2016. Winners will also receive a print of their image for each of their home institutions.
