Cool Science Image Contest, 2020

February 14, 2020

Share your work and your passionate interest in science by contributing an entry to the Cool Science Image contest!

The contest is open to UW-Madison students, faculty and staff (as individuals or teams) and can depict objects or phenomena from any discipline.

Visit the announcement 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 30 until the deadline date, March 15, 2020.

Winners will be announced in April and receive gift certificates, a large format print, and the honor of having their work exhibited at the McPherson Eye Research Institute’s Mandelbaun and Albert Family Vision Gallery.

For inspiration, browse the winners from the 2019 contest online and those from 2016 that grace the walls at Steenbock Library (first floor corridor near elevator and stacks near vending).
