PE&RC Day 2017 - Picture Awards

How does your research show the beauty of our world?

2 November 2017

Deadline for submission of your pictures for competing in the awards is Thursday 12 October 2017, 2 PM (Dutch time)
POSTPONED TO MONDAY 16 OCTOBER 2017, 2 PM (Dutch time)

Similarly to last year, we have decided to award something that we feel every PhD candidate of PE&RC can equally compete for and that are attractive to look at for the broader (scientific) public: pictures or other visualisations of your work!

The idea of the PE&RC Picture Awards is as follows. We will have two categories, one about your PhD Thesis cover, and one about your PhD field-/lab-/modelling work. Each participant can submit 2 images (one in each category). The top 3 of each category will be awarded a prize with a value of € 75,-, € 50,-, and € 25,-. The pictures will be exhibited during the PE&RC Day itself, and everyone at the PE&RC day will get the chance to vote for their favourite. Then, at the end of the PE&RC Day, the votes are counted, and the prizes awarded.

  • Category 1 - Thesis cover: No need to be at the end of your thesis to present your research in a picture that could be the cover of your booklet. You have full creative freedom, hand in a photo or start painting. It has to be your original work and no text or title is allowed.
  • Category 2 - Field-/lab-/modelling work: Show the beauty in your work. For example, did you take a great picture through a microscope or during your last fieldwork? Or your model produces a beautiful graphical representation? Send it in!

Submission Criteria:Be sure that the pictures are of sufficient quality to print the pictures in A3-format. Accompany the picture with a short description of what we see on the picture (max 100 words). There is a maximum of one picture per category per applicant. To take part in the competition, the applicant needs to be present during the PE&RC Day or send a delegate (and communicate the name of the delegate to the PE&RC office).

Submission deadline: Thursday 12 October 2017, 2 PM (Dutch time) POSTPONED TO MONDAY 16 OCTOBER 2017, 2 PM (Dutch time).
