Calling all doctoral researchers: enter our Research Image Competition and you could win £300 towards your research

As part of the upcoming Festival of Doctoral Research, all doctoral students are invited to submit an image our Research Image Competition. Engaging, informative, and aesthetically attractive, your picture should perfectly capture your research, visually communicating the scope and excitement of your work to a non-specialist audience.

Each image will be judged by a panel of experts from Sussex, with all shortlisted images displayed in a special exhibition taking place in the Attenborough Centre of Creative Arts on Wednesday 27 June. The creator of the image judged to be the best will be awarded £300 to put towards their research.  A People’s Choice Award, voted for by Festival visitors, will be worth £150 towards research costs.

Additionally, all shortlisted images will also be published in the new ‘networks’ issue of the journal Excursions, in a special feature celebrating doctoral networks at Sussex. All entrants with shortlisted images will also receive a copy of the networks issue, which will be launched during festival week.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 18 May. If you’d like to take part, you can enter here - but be sure to take a look at our competition guidelines and judging criteria first. If you don’t have an image to submit but would still like to attend the exhibition, you can book your place here.

The Research Image Competition  is part of Festival of Doctoral Research, a three-day programme of events designed to showcase the outstanding doctoral research currently underway throughout the university. Take a look at the full programme of events here.
