Research Communication is an important and at the same time challenging activity for many researchers. To help early stage researchers communicate their research to an audience outside their research area and become more visible, the photo competition “My Research in one Picture” will take place this year already for the third time.
If you are an early stage researcher at the University of Vienna (doctoral candidate or PostDoc of all disciplines) you are invited to submit a photo/image illustrating your research. An accompanying abstract should explain how the image is embedded into your research.
Besides receiving the chance to communicate your research, there are prizes for the best 3 pictures.
Prizes: winner € 400, 2nd place € 200, 3rd place € 100
We are looking for fascinating, informative pictures which innovatively show your research. After a first selection acc. to the eligibility criteria the pictures will be evaluated by the public via social media. Therefore we will publish the best pictures incl. abstract on the University of Vienna’s Facebook page for public voting between May 2nd and May 17th 2017. The best 10 pictures will be printed and presented at the “Annual conference of the Center for Doctoral Studies” on June 9th, 2017. A jury chooses and awards the 3 winners at the conference.
By submitting an image the applicant hereby grants the University a perpetual, worldwide, royalty free, unlimited license to use, copy and modify the image ( and the abstract) in any currently known or any future manner. In particular, this includes the University’s right to disseminate the image and make it available to the public or to make use of it in any similar way. These rights are granted free of charge.
