2017 Image of Research contest now OPEN!

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

The 10th annual Image of Research exhibit competition is now accepting submissions! Submitting an entry (still image or video) is simple, and it gives your research a chance for broad exposure across the campus. Further, it may even win you some prize money!

Images will be judged on originality, relationship to the student's research at UIC, and overall impact. An exhibit of the winners will be on display in the Richard J. Daley Library and the Library of Health Sciences as well as on banners around campus. Winning entries will become part of the University Archives and will remain in an online gallery on the Graduate College website and in the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) database.

    • 1st Prize:  $500
    • 2nd Prize: $300
    • 3rd Prize:  $200
    • Honorable Mentions: $100
    • Winner of Moving Image Category: $500

In addition, for this year's special, 10th anniversary, there will be two "best-of" awards:

  • Best Still Image of 10 Years of IoR, people's pick (attendees of the Fall 2017 reception will have a chance to vote among the jury-selected semi-finalists)
  • Best Moving Image of 10 Years of IoR, jury's pick

The deadline to submit is Wednesday, May 31, 2017.
