This contest connects the public with real, contemporary Northwestern research through high-quality visuals. Winning images are professionally printed and displayed in museums, libraries, and galleries across Chicago and Evanston.

By submitting an image, you have a chance to share your scientific work and its impact on society with a wide-reaching audience.

Previous exhibition sites include the Museum of Science and Industry, Evanston Public Library, the Chicago Arts District, and Navy Pier.

Winning researchers also have the opportunity to share their work through short talks and workshops connected to the exhibition at various venues. Science in Society, a Northwestern research center dedicated to public engagement and science education, supports winners with science communication training.

The top five images will be awarded cash prizes.
