graduate images

The UCL Graduate School is once again inviting entries for its annual cross-disciplinary competition and exhibition ‘Research Images as Art / Art Images as Research’.

The competition is open to all graduate students and staff from any discipline and is a chance to submit and display research images with an aesthetic impact.

Pictures will be selected by a panel based on their aesthetic appeal and the nature of their subject matter as well as technical quality.

The following rules apply:

  • pictures must be generated as a result of UCL research work
  • pictures should not be older than one year
  • submissions can be in the form of digital images, high-quality prints and original artwork or slides
  • the panel cannot accept hard-copy entries larger than 1.1m × 1.7m
  • the panel cannot accept sculptures, objects or pictures behind glass or perspex
  • all entries must be accompanied by an entry form, available at the link above
  • up to 3 entries per person may be submitted (each with a separate entry form)

All entries will be exhibited in the North Cloisters in January 2011.

The closing date for all entries to the competition is Sunday 14 November 2010.

UCL Context

In all its different activities, the UCL Graduate School is important in providing both intellectual and social contact between graduates of different disciplines and from different backgrounds and countries. The Graduate School is here to help make rewarding contacts outside the close confines of the laboratory or the library, whether within UCL or outside in the wider world.
