Cool Science Images, 2017 Contest

January 31, 2017

Share your work or share your passionate interest in science by contributing an entry to the Cool Science Image contest.

The contest is open to currently-enrolled UW-Madison students, faculty and staff and can depict objects or phenomena from any discipline.

Visit the site for details about how to enter (and to complete an entry form). Entries, which are judged on their “aesthetic and informational qualities”, will be accepted from January 31 until the deadline date, March 3, 2017.

Winners will be announced late March and receive gift certificates, a large format print, and the honor of having the work exhibited at the McPherson Eye Research Institute’s Mandelbaun and Albert Family Vision Gallery, among other campus venues.

For inspiration, take a look at the winners and finalists from last year’s contest or visit the first floor of Steenbock Library.  The library has been pleased to exhibit contest entries.
