A 305 million-year-old spider, the inside of a tadpole’s head and lightning striking the blade of a windmill all feature in this year’s Images of Research competition at The University of Manchester.
15 stunning photographs have been shortlisted and are going on display from Wednesday 17 October at a special exhibition at the John Rylands Library on Deansgate in Manchester City Centre. They provide a behind the scenes look at the work being carried out by researchers both on campus and around the world.
This year’s theme is “Making a Difference”. The images demonstrate how research being carried out at The University of Manchester is affecting the wider world and benefitting society.
Now you can help decide on the winner!
An overall winner will be chosen by the public who can vote both online at: www.manchesterimagesofresearch.co.uk/ and at the exhibition.
Julian Skyrme, Head of Social Responsibility says: “This competition is all about opening up our research to the public, demonstrating what we do through creative and compelling images. Our researchers are passionate about their work and the benefits their research can bring. The images shortlisted for this competition reflect their commitment and drive to understand and improve our world.”
