DiRAC is excited to launch this year’s research image competition and encourage our past and present users to submit aesthetically inspiring and scientifically interesting imagery which has been generated using the DiRAC facility over the past three years.
Submissions for this year’s competition have now closed.
The competition is a wonderful opportunity to have your research imagery displayed across the DiRAC platform, on our website, on social media, and in print media (see our 2023 calendar, right) and will help promote interest in your area of scientific study.
There are two categories for submission and the winners of each category will be selected by a panel of experts.
The best image in each category will be awarded a £250 Amazon e-voucher, kindly donated by Logicalis UK.
Theme 1: Particle and Nuclear Physics
Theme 2: Astronomy, Cosmology and Solar & Planetary Science
Any imagery submitted to this competition could be used in future marketing/publicity materials relating to DiRAC in either digital or print and as such, should have visual impact and scientific interest. We will be producing a 2024 DiRAC calendar, the imagery for which will be drawn from the submissions to this competition and a selection of the top images will be displayed at our annual DiRAC Science Day event.
