[Art of Research]
The winning image of the inaugural Art of Research photo contest was Perfusion of Light, by Raymond Sturgeon, PhD student, Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences.

After a fantastic first year, the Art of Research photo contest has returned!

Recently, the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research) (OVPR) launched the second Art of Research photo contest, calling on all faculty, staff and students to showcase their research, scholarly and artistic work.

This year’s contest offers cash prizes (First – $500, Second – $300, Third – $200, Honourable Mention – $100) and the chance to be featured in (e)AFFECT, the Queen’s research magazine. Ten images, showcasing the breadth of research happening at Queen’s, were selected in last year’s contest.

“With the abundance of creative work and groundbreaking research happening at Queen’s, we want to provide an alternative outlet to showcase these discoveries,” says Melinda Knox, the co-managing editor of (e)AFFECT. “The photo subject matter is only limited by imagination – photos from last year ranged in subject from Cypriot cats to secluded monasteries to migrating cells. This contest provides a unique opportunity to be as creative as possible.”

The contest is now open and all entries must be received by Nov. 18 at 4 p.m. Images must be accompanied by an entry form and can be submitted to research@queensu.ca.

Full details can be found on the OVPR website.
