"This is the first time that I have been involved in judging this competition, and I have been surprised to see how effective a well-chosen image can both explain a research topic and engage interest in that research. It was a difficult process to narrow down the field as the calibre of entries was strong. It is clear that colleagues have taken great care in representing their research visually. I commend everyone for entering and showing their research in a different light."
