Enter the 2018 Scientific Images Contest

July 2, 2018

The Northwestern community is invited to submit an image to the 2018 Scientific Images Contest.

Since 2010, the contest has provided a vibrant, engaging way for Northwestern researchers — including students, faculty, and staff — across a range of disciplines to share their work visually with members of the University community and the public. 

Submitted images represent advances across many areas of study, including medicine, genetics, chemistry, engineering, and nanotechnology. Judged by an interdisciplinary panel of local artists, scientists, and community leaders, each image comes from a Northwestern research project and cannot be fundamentally altered from its original form. In essence, the images represent both scientific data and arresting visual media.
