College of Pharmacy Image Competition

2018 Image Competition 

Competition Rules

The Office of the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education is pleased to announce 8th College of Pharmacy (COP) “Images of Research” competition. The purpose of the competition is to assemble a portfolio of the most innovative and creative images to convey the range of research taking place in COP.  These images will be used to promote, advance and represent our College both in printed and digital media.

This competition offers COP trainees the opportunity to submit digital images created over the course of their research and is open to any student enrolled in one of the COP programs or postdoc currently working in the College. Between September 7 and October 12, 2018, students and postdocs are invited to submit up to two images in each of the 2 categories:

  • Images of Research.  Technical images generated in the course of the research or to illustrate a research topic.  Two entries/person allowed.
  • Images of Scientists at Work.  Creative images demonstrating how the research is done. Two entries/person allowed.

After the submission period ends, everyone in the College will be able to review the submissions and vote for the best image.  Prizes will be awarded to the top three entries, regardless of a category, in the form of Amazon gift cards.

  • 1st Prize:  $150 Amazon gift card
  • 2nd Prize: $100 Amazon gift card
  • 3rd Prize:  $50 Amazon gift card

In addition, if we receive enough entries in the Images of Scientists at Work category (minimum of 20), we will award a separate additional $100 Amazon gift card to the top entry within Images of Scientists at Work category. 

An exhibit of the winning images will be on display on the COP web site, and each image entered will be featured in our "Image of the week" news feature on Facebook.

All entries will become property of the College and remain in a College of Pharmacy database. They will be used to promote the College and research going on in the College in both printed and digital media.
