Visions and images of fascination, photocompetition!

5 april 2013

Photo Competition of the European Young Academies. Science and Humanities Visualized! The contest is open to all scholars (PhD students, postdoctoral and advanced researchers) who currently work on research projects in the sciences or the humanities at a university or at a research institution in Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Scotland, or Sweden.

What is it that makes research fascinating?

There are several potential answers to this question: the luring attraction of the unknown, of the other, the obscure, or the mysterious; the desire for insight into research areas that have yet to be explored; the sheerbeauty of mind games and scientific experiments; the risks attached to certain kinds of research; the visionary aspects of some projects; the challenges they pose; the thrill when you finally get it; or, as the Irish poet W.B. Yeats describes it, quite simply the fascination of what is difficult. What fascinates researchers; where does this fascination spring from; and, more importantly, how can this fascination be captured, visualised, and communicated by a photographic image? We invite researchers from Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Scotland, and Sweden to participate and submit pictures which capture aspects of fascination in their own research.











How to participate?

  • All photographs must have a resolution of at least 300x300 dpi and must be submitted in RGB, B/W, or greyscale as JPEG files only.
  • Please include a short description of the picture, its connection to your research, and its “fascination” (150 words max.), your contact details and affiliation and the date and location the photo was taken. 
  • Each participant may submit up to two photographs maximum.
  • Pictures must be submitted online: imagesoffascination.net

Who can participate?

The contest is open to all scholars (PhD students, postdoctoral and advanced researchers) who currently work on research projects in the sciences or the humanities at a university or at a research institution in
Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Scotland, or Sweden. The deadline for submissions is 15 April 2013
