What are we looking for?

The brain is a hidden yet wonderous organ, yielding many stunning sights for those studying its inner workings. To showcase the fascinating insights we’re gaining in dementia research and to celebrate the incredible work you’re doing, we are holding a competition to discover the best scientific images.

The competition is open to all dementia researchers, and there are two key criteria for entry:

  • Conveying an interesting aspect of dementia research.
  • Being visually pleasing and engaging.

Images can stem from a range of sources, such as (but not limited to) microscopy or brain scans, so let your creative juices flow.

Shortlisted entries will be displayed at The Alzheimer’s Research UK Research Conference, being held this March in Newport Wales, and at public engagement events around the conference. The winning image will be selected by a public vote.

Prize

The winner will be able to choose between a WG-M2 high-grade, heavy-duty action camera or a PENTAX K-70 DSLR for outdoor photography, generously donated by Ricoh.

Submission details

Images should be submitted electronically using the form below. A maximum of three images per person can be submitted. Images should be a maximum of 25MB and a minimum of 300dpi, as JPEG or TIFF files.

You will need to include a title for the image, and a description of the image putting the research into context. The description must be understandable to people without a scientific background, this will be taken into consideration by the judges when shortlisting.

Applicants can submit up to three images.

Deadline

All entries need to be submitted by 4:00pm on Friday 14 February 2020.
