#ERN2022 Photo Competition is open!

July 26, 2022

The #ERN2022 Photo Competition celebrates science, technology and art in the most creative way. The most eclectic mix of ideas, disciplines and perspectives creates the most far-reaching conversations, in-depth debates, and inspiring developments and plays an important role in making science accessible to a wide audience.

This initiative happens under the European Researchers’ Night 2022 event that will happen on September 30, 2022, and it will take place in different cities of Portugal – Braga, Coimbra, Lisboa and Évora and around Europe. In Braga, it will happen at Altice Fórum Braga. This year’s theme is Science for Everyone – Sustainability and Inclusion.

This is your opportunity to showcase the creative side of science. The ERN2022 Photo Competition is an open competition and everyone is encouraged to capture scientific phenomena happening all around us, and submit up to two original photographs within the following categories::

  • Nano/micro: Images obtained through microscopes (optical, electron, SPM, etc.)

  • General:  Other images related to the scientific world (e.g. labs, students, setups, sample preparation, simulations, everyday life related to science, etc.)

All selected photos will be evaluated by a jury composed of nine representatives of the nine institutions that compose the consortium.

Your talent and unique visualisations are honoured and celebrated. Whether you’re a student, teacher, artist, scientist, engineer, designer, or educator – join the challenge and share your creativity until August 31, 2022.
