Show us your research photos – TRU Newsroom
Once again, we are asking TRU students, staff and faculty to show us what research looks by submitting photos to the Worth 1000 Words: Research in Pictures contest.
Open the door, and let us see what goes on in your lab, let us walk with you in the field, or bring us with you into the community. Show us how your work impacts the world around us.
This contest, now in its second year, aims to demystify the research process. Last year, the contest drew dozens of entries, some of them poignant and serious, while others captured unexpected surprises and the humour and fun to be found in such a serious enterprise.
All eligible entries will be adjudicated by a committee led by Donald Lawrence, Professor, Visual Arts. Judges are looking to create an online exhibition that reflects research in all stages, and that showcases research from all disciplines. Judges will also consider images that move us beyond the limits of the human eye and are captured through the use of scientific tools.
“The photographer has to be right there in the action, and in many cases, there is only one moment in which that photo could have been taken,” Lawrence says, reflecting on the types of photos submitted in 2020.
- Deadline to submit, Feb. 15
- Top prize, $500
- Second-place prize, $250
- Two additional cash prizes of $100 will be awarded for best caption, and people’s choice
