Combining visual and written communication skills

This annual competition provides an opportunity for graduate students to share photos and images related to their research and graduate school experience. The competition is judged by a panel drawn from FGS and GSA leadership and staff, alongside graduate student and faculty judges. Cash prizes are awarded to the top three entries.

Each entry must be accompanied with two abstracts:

  • A technical abstract explaining how the image relates to the research
  • A non-technical abstract written for a general audience

Entries are judged on composition, quality, how effectively the images connect with research, and on the quality of the written abstracts.
