NC State is calling on graduate students, postdocs, faculty and staff to take part in Envisioning Research, the university’s annual research image contest. Help us highlight the beauty and importance of the work being done at the bench and in the field, both on campus and around the world.

The Envisioning Research contest is a collaborative effort by NC State’s Office of Research, Innovation and Economic Development, Graduate School, University Communications, College of Sciences, and NCSU Libraries. There are cash prizes for winners and runners-up in four categories:

All images should be original, well-executed and effective at communicating information to the audience. See below for more details.

Cash prizes are provided by the Graduate School and ORIED. In the graduate student/ postdoctoral division, prizes are $250 for first place and $100 for second place in each category. Prizes in the faculty/staff division are also $250 for first place and $100 for second place in each category. Winning images will also be featured in displays at Hunt and D.H. Hill libraries.

More information, and the online submission form, are available at: https://envisioning.research.ncsu.edu/. Submissions are due no later than June 8, 2018.

Each submission must include a caption of no more than 150 words that describes the work. Each submission must also include a one- to two-sentence explanation of why the work may be important for North Carolina, the United States or the world.

Submissions from a laboratory or team of researchers must designate a single point of contact on the form.

Individuals may submit multiple entries, but each entry must be submitted separately.

By submitting a photograph, image, graphic, or video (collectively the “work”) contestants hereby agree to the following:

Winners will be announced Aug. 1. Anyone with questions about the contest can contact Tony Kershaw at alkersha@ncsu.edu or (919) 515-2699.
