Images of Research Competition
Jan 3, 2020 - Feb 3, 2020
The University of Massachusetts Amherst Graduate School is proud to host its 1st annual Images of Research Competition! In academia, the act of research often goes unseen. This competition seeks to make graduate student and postdoc research visible in a literal sense: a photography / image contest! “Research” is defined broadly to include creative and scholarly work in all fields and the image can represent your work or its impact either concretely or abstractly. A “People’s Choice” award valued at $250 will be given to the photo with the most likes on OPD's Instagram and will be announced at the 3MT Campus Final on February 28, 2020. Submissions must be received by Monday, February 3, 2020.
