Images of Research 2020

Can you capture the essence of your research through a single image?

Images of research 2020

We are pleased to announce the launch of our second Images of Research competition, following last year’s successful inaugural edition. This university-wide competition offers researchers across NTU the opportunity to convey their research using a single image (photograph, digital image or piece of artwork) along with an engaging short description.

The aim of the competition is to showcase the breadth and diversity of research at NTU, both within our community of postgraduate researchers, early career researchers and established academics, and across our research themes and projects. Imagery is the ideal medium for engaging non-specialists, enabling the essence of complex research projects to be captured and shared in an accessible way.

This is a unique opportunity for individuals to raise their research profiles, and engage with a public audience, both across NTU and externally. All entries will be promoted on the university website, social media channels and on screens across NTU campuses.

The winners will be announced shortly. Follow NTU Research on Twitter to keep up to date.

See all of this year's entries in the gallery below.

Public Vote

You can vote for your favourite images and abstracts by entering into the NTU People’s Choice Competition. This is open until April 16th 2021 at midnight.

Voting Guidelines: Images of Research is essentially about making research accessible and understandable to all. As a guide, a winning image would be one that:

1. Is of a high quality and visually appealing

2. Has an accompanying abstract which is well written, clearly connects with the image and ensures viewers, who know nothing about the research topic, will understand and find interest in the research presented.

After studying the images and abstracts below, using the scroll buttons, go to the Poll link and select your 3 favourites.
