About

The Capture Your Research! is an image competition where Engineering students, faculty, and staff can submit one image that captures the essence of their research.  They will be judged on originality/creativity, aesthetic – appeal of the image, relationship between the image and their research, and clarity of the written description. 

We will have four prize categories for undergraduate, graduate, faculty/staff (including the research labs/centers), and people’s choice.

This will be based off of similar project at the University of Alberta.   You can see example of images submitted to the University of Alberta competition here
