Overview

The Image of Research is a multidisciplinary competition celebrating the diversity and breadth of graduate student research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Graduate and professional students are invited to submit entries consisting of an image and brief text that articulates how the image relates to the research. Entries will be judged by a multidisciplinary panel for:

  • Connection between image, text, and research
  • Originality
  • Visual Impact

All images submitted will be included in an online exhibit hosted by the University Library and are archived for long term preservation in IDEALS.
