About PhDepictions

The brief is deceptively simple - communicate your research in a single image.

PhDepictions is designed to help research students to think about how they can use media outside of the traditional paper/ presentation/ poster formats to communicate their work, their findings, and their passion for research. All research students are expected to be able to communicate their work both to other discipine specialists as well as to mixed audiences including the media, industry, and the general public.

Competitions like this provide research students with the opportunity to develop their ability to communicate research to mixed audiences and help them gain cofidence in their own presentation skills.

The competition was held for the first time in 2014 to coincide with the 10th Festival of Postgraduate Research (26 June 2014).
