Deadline for submissions to Cool Science Image Contest is March 3

February 16, 2017

Did you know that images are central to conducting and communicating science?

And such images are often just as artistic as they are instructive.

To recognize the visual and exploratory value of scientific imagery, the 7th annual Cool Science Image Contest is currently seeking submissions. The contest offers an opportunity to show off compelling science images made by students, staff or faculty. Campus members may submit individually or as teams.

Cool Science Images 2016
Check out Cool Science Images from the 2016 contest here.
Images can depict an object or phenomenon from any discipline, and any method of producing an image is welcome.

To browse images from previous years, visit The Why Files' Flickr page.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 3.

Prizes include a $100 Downtown Madison gift card and a poster-size print of their submitted image. All winning entries will be displayed in a slide show at the 2017 Wisconsin Science Festival and during an exhibition at the McPherson Eye Research Institute.
