The Image Of Research

Researcher's working

The Image of Research is an annual interdisciplinary exhibit competition organized by the Graduate College and University Library 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.

The winning entries are chosen by a multi-disciplinary jury and exhibited on the Graduate College website as well as the UIC institutional repository.

For any questions about The Image of Research, please use the contact information below.

Please be advised this year’s Image of Research competition has been rescheduled to take place during the fall 2024 semester. This will allow us to return the competition to its original fall semester timeline, along with allowing our new Dean of the Graduate College to participate in the process. Contest opening, submission deadlines, and other details will be posted on this page in the near future.
