Celebrating the work of our early career and postgraduate researchers.
Discover the fantastic work of our early career and postgraduate researchers by attending our Images of Research exhibition from Monday 2 March.
The Images of Research photography competition challenges our early career and postgraduate researchers to communicate the significance and impact of their work through a single image and a 150-word abstract.
The event, now in its second year, follows the great success of the 2018/19 Images of Research competition where Sarah Scott, third-year PhD student from the Faculty of Science and Engineering, scooped both the ‘People’s Choice’ and ‘Judge’s Choice’ awards with her submission ‘Data Incoming!’.
This year’s shortlist includes a host of fantastic entries from our emerging researchers:
- Charlotte Arculus, Faculty of Education – ‘Illuminating Arts Practices in Early Childhood with More-Than-Human Technologies’

Three awards are up for grabs, including the ‘People’s Choice Award’, ‘Judge’s Choice Award – early career researchers’ and ‘Judge’s Choice Award – postgraduate researchers’.
Our 10 finalist’s images will be on display throughout March in the reception of the Benzie building and you can vote for your chosen winner in the ‘People’s Choice Award’ on the Images of Research competition webpage.
