Posted by crm28 at Jan 27, 2017 11:10 AM |
Images of Research from around the University will be on display at Queen’s Hall on Thursday 9 February 2017.

Between 11am and 4pm on Thursday 9 February 2017, the Percy Gee Building’s Queen’s Hall will be hosting an Images of Research event which is free to attend and is open to students, staff and members of the public.

The images on display were submitted to year’s Images of Research competition which builds on the Graduate School’s PhDepictions competition and was open to staff entries for the first time. The event aims to give an insight into the wide range of research carried out by the University’s staff and students and the way that this research can make a difference to society.

A distinguished panel of judges will be selecting images for awards in a number of categories, these include a prize for the best entry from each college, and a prize from the Students’ Union for the best image by a postgraduate research student. Visitors to the event will also be able to cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award, using ballots handed out on arrival.

“Images of Research showcases not only the beauty of research as an aesthetic, but also the incredible innovation being undertaken across all areas of research and innovation at the University of Leicester” said Professor Paul Monks, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Head of the College of Science and Engineering. “I would encourage the citizens of Leicester and our own staff and students to visit the showcase on 9 February, there is something for everyone there”.

Over 100 images were originally submitted to the competition and 51 shortlisted images will be displayed on 9 February for public viewing.

The 2016 PhDepictions prize for best photograph went to Robert Ott’s ‘The Callus’, with Riya George as runner up for her photograph ‘Seeing the person behind the patient’.

The event is free and open to all.
