Intern
    International Symposium organized by the Students of the Graduate School of Life Sciences

    Image and Writing Contests

    Like in past years, there are two independent competitions which PhD students joining the symposium are eligible to apply for. We will be offering at least one prize for each competition. These have yet to be determined and will be announced on this website in the next months. Examples of past year winners can be found here.

    In the WRITING CONTEST, PhD students are encouraged to write a creative essay about their research. These stories are not only intended for peers in their field but should also be for the layman without a scientific background. In past years, successful competitors have written essays relating not just to their research field but also showing their great excitement for their research question, addressing common scientific misconceptions about their field and incorporated them in entertaining stories about their scientific endeavours. So share your personal Eureka moment or write about how your findings will change the world in the future!!!


    Rules for the WRITING CONTEST:

    1. Participants must attend the Eureka! 2017 Symposium.
    2. Only one entry per person may be submitted.
    3. The essay must be written in English using a style suitable for a non-scientific audience.

    In the IMAGE CONTEST, PhD students present fascinating moments captured from their own scientific work. The images can be taken on a variety of scientific imaging devices. In the past years the contestants allowed a broader audience to appreciate the beauty of science on any level imaginable.

    Rules for the IMAGE CONTEST:

    1. Participants must attend the Eureka! 2017 Symposium.
    2. Only one entry per person may be submitted.
    3. The resolution should be high enough that the image can be printed out in an A3 format.

    5. The image must be a part of scientific work.
    6. Image manipulations are acceptable to bring out colors, contrast, etc; but not to add or remove objects from the image.
    7. The image can show living or nonliving objects.
    8. The image can be submitted in any of the following formats JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, BMP and the resolution should be high enough, that the image can be printed out in an A3 format.
    9. The image has to be submitted with a title and a short description what it shows in English. The title can be more artistic and catchy (1 line), whereas the description should contain scientific details about meaning, importance, method and imaging device (3-10 lines).
    10. Please send the text with your personal details (name, lab/institute and research field) and the image as an email attachment to eureka.imagecontest@gmail.com, no later than 30th September 2017 20:00 (CET).
