Poster and Image Competitions

1st prize research imageThis is an annual event that ties in with the Cambridge Science festival. It is an opportunity for MPhil, PhD and postdoctoral researchers from across the GSLS to pitch their work to a non-expert audience, and get feedback from the judges.

There are three separate competitions that make up the overall event:

  • Research Posters - detailing specific research projects
  • Research Images - images taken during research
  • Impact Posters - conveying a simple scientific message

You can see work from 2013 and 2014 in the menu on the left.
