New for 2018, the SHU Doctoral Research Image competition is open to all doctoral researchers in any year of study.  We welcome attention-grabbing images to intrigue, inform or excite a lay/non-specialist research audience about your research.  Images may be arresting, beautiful, moving or even amusing but they must relate to your doctoral research project.

Each image should be accompanied by a title and caption that will relate the image to your doctoral research project and will also provide some insight into the researcher behind the image.  Entries from individual doctoral researchers or groups are welcome.

Voting for the Research Image of the Year will take place throughout the Doctoral Showcase on 24 May and the winning images will be decided by audience vote.  Prizes of £50 and £25 will be awarded for first and second places respectively.

If you have any queries about this competition, please contact us and we’d be happy to chat with you further.  We’re hoping for a good display so please submit an entry.
