Art of Research Photo Contest

[Art of Research Photo Contest]

Calling all photographers, professional and amateur! Let research be your muse and submit your image to the 2017-2018 Art of Research photo contest.


The contest will allow entries into four categories:

  • Community Collaborations
  • Invisible Discoveries
  • Out in the Field
  • Art in Action

Capture a moment under the microscope, in the lab or on your computer. Go out in the community and explore human dimensions and the beauty of nature. Be global … The competition is aimed at providing a creative and accessible method of sharing and celebrating the ground-breaking research being done by current and past Queen’s community members. The 2015 and 2016 contests provided us with inspiring images of the dynamic scholarship happening across disciplines.


A prize of $500 will be awarded to the top photo in each of the categories. In addition to prizes for each of the categories above, prizes will be granted for the following:

  • Best Description will recognize the most creative description for an image, and
  • People’s Choice will be determined by an online vote by members of the Queen’s community.

All images will also be featured on the Queen’s research web page and on other Queen’s materials.

Who is eligible?

Any current Queen’s faculty, staff, student or alumni.


The contest is open, and all entries must be received by the contest closing date: January 31, 2018 at 4 pm. All images must be accompanied by an entry form.

To enter, please complete an entry form, and send form along with your image to Leigh Cameron, Research Promotion Coordinator (lmc16@queensu.ca) directly or via Dropbox. Each person may submit only one photograph or image. Images must be photo quality (300 dpi, 8 x 10") and in JPEG format.
