Submit your images from UChicago research to 2023 Science as Art contest

Science and art aren’t as far apart as common wisdom may make them seem. In the course of research, beautiful images can appear in simulations, under microscopes or in photography.

University Communications invites all members of the UChicago community to submit images from their scientific research for the second year of the Science as Art contest. (See last year’s winners.) The winner will receive $300 and a framed print of the winning image. A “fan favorite,” judged by the public on UChicago’s Instagram and Twitter, will also receive $150. The images will be displayed on the UChicago main website, the UChicago Intranet, social media and in exhibitions.

Requirements: The images must be the result of research affiliated with the University of Chicago. They must be original images created by the submitters, and they may not include patient samples or data. Any commonly used image format is acceptable (though TIFFs are preferred). It should be the largest possible resolution. Multiple submissions are allowed.

The deadline to enter is Tuesday, March 21. To submit an image to the contest, click here. Questions? Send inquiries to
