On Friday 25th May, the winners for the Images of Research 2012 competition were announced. The competition was run jointly by the Library and Employability & Graduate Development and was open to all postgraduate researchers. It aimed to highlight the wide range of research that is taking place at the university, using images to look at that research in a new and exciting way. There were three categories and a winner was selected in each by our panel of judges.
The three categories & their winners were:
Enhancing the quality of life, health & creative output Winner: Helen Owton ‘The Meaning of Breathing’
Increasing the effectiveness of public services & policy Winner: Nick Napper ‘Are text based slides really the best we can do?’ (pictured alongside his winning poster with David Billington (one of the judges & Executive Director of Great Western Research))
Fostering UK & global economic importance Winner: Neil Ormerod ‘Trail Test’
Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all those who entered. Thanks also to the Annual Fund for their generous support of this project. The posters are now available to view in the breakout space in the Research Commons.
