SHU Research Image Showcase 2020

The Sheffield Hallam Research Image showcase is an inclusive celebration of our researchers from across the University.

The Research Image showcase is open to all researchers across the University, regardless of subject area, college, directorate, staff or PGR student.  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 research or University life.

Each image should be accompanied by a separate title and caption (via the entry form) that will relate the image to your research or experience (max 150 words) and will also provide some insight into the person behind the image.  This must be written in accessible English that gives simple yet informative facts about the image and your research.  You must also give any due acknowledgements.

All entries will be considered by a selection panel for appropriateness of content and if successful your image will be displayed on the day of the Creating Knowledge Conference and we aim to include them within the conference booklet.

Deadline for entries:  Tuesday 21 April 2020 (5.00 pm).  Submit your image and entry form by email to
