Images are a powerful means of teaching and communicating, and an excellent way to reach a broad and diverse audience to increase the impact and awareness of scientific research. In the field of bio-imaging, we are lucky to produce data that is often inherently ripe with aesthetic and scientific value. Even images that are not necessarily visually beautiful can be intriguing or captivating, and can stimulate curiosity or other emotions.
This year, QBIN launched its first Annual Art of Imaging Competition. From microscopy to MRI, we want to showcase the wide variety of topics covered by our network’s members to spark curiosity and inspire viewers to learn more about bio-imaging research conducted in Quebec and around the world, and how it impacts their lives.
Two prizes will be awarded for the best submitted images: The People’s Choice Award will be selected here by online popular vote, and the Jury Award will be selected by a panel of QBIN committee members. Winners will be awarded $200 as well as the opportunity to have their image included in our next live Art of Imaging exhibition (learn more about our previous exhibitions here).
Help us select the People’s Choice Award winner by voting for your favorite images in the gallery of finalists below! You can vote for as many images as you like, but you can only vote once per image.
Voting will close at 11pm (EST) on March 9, 2021.
