Competition closed to entries

Shortlisting for this year’s competition is now underway.

This annual competition and subsequent year-long exhibition brings the research conducted at Strathclyde to an audience of thousands of people visiting art galleries, museums and public spaces. 

This year’s competition, Progress through partnership, celebrates our research, that takes its fundamental inspiration from societal need. Through shared insight and collaboration, Strathclyde aims to better understand real world challenges and design the most effective solutions.

This year’s four categories, drawing inspiration from the University’s strategic themes, are:

  • Collaboration for impact
  • Transformative technology
  • Picture of health
  • Sustainable society

The resulting exhibition will be launched at Engage with Strathclyde, which runs from 4th to 7th May, in the Technology and Innovation Centre. More information about this week-long event and the Images of Research launch night (Tuesday 5th May) will be announced here shortly.

The category winners will be announced at the launch event and presented with printed canvasses of their entries, courtesy of our sponsors Jessops. The public vote will then be opened to choose the overall winner and runner-up of this year’s competition.

“The quality of entries was outstanding. Each of them brought the excitement of Strathclyde’s research to a wider public. But many entries did something more: they showed great insights into the purpose and meaning of the research projects.”  

Professor Graeme Reid, University College London, Strategic Themes award judge
