The Image of Research Exhibit
The Image of Research
The Image of Research is an annual interdisciplinary exhibit competition to showcase the breadth and diversity of research at UIC. Each year, students enrolled in a graduate or professional degree program at UIC are invited to submit an image they created along with a brief précis of how the image relates to the student’s overall research. A multi-disciplinary jury reviews the submissions and awards prizes to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and three honorable mentions. Criteria for judging include: the originality of the image and the research it represents; the relationship between the image and the research; and overall aesthetic appeal of the image.
An exhibit featuring the winners and the finalists is displayed in the lobby of the Daley Library every spring. The winning entries are also on exhibit in the Library of Health Sciences and featured on light pole banners around campus. Winners, finalists and a wide selection of other entries received for each year's competition are posted to an online gallery in the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI).
