How would you illustrate materials science research at Chalmers? We invite staff and students at Chalmers and the Department of Biomaterials at University of Gothenburg to the second edition of our photo contest.
The photos that enter the competition are used to profile and
promote the materials science research taking place at Chalmers and the
Department of Biomaterials at University of Gothenburg. (We have had
much use for the photos from the previous competiton in 2015.)
Be creative! If the research topic you have in mind is
cellulose-based materials, your photo could be anything from a
micrograph from an experiment to a close-up photo of a beautiful tree.
A jury will select finalists, and these photos will be exhibitied
during Materials for Tomorrow 2018, where visitors may vote for their
favourite photo. Fine prizes will be awarded to the thee photos with the
highest number of votes.
Participation is free of charge.
