Art of Science

Advances in imaging technology and tools mean that scientists have an increased ability to generate exciting data as well as to create compelling works of art. This contest offers an opportunity to share the beauty of science through photographs and images that describe some aspect of research captured visually.

We invite entries from Binghamton students, postdocs, faculty and staff members in the following categories:

  • The World Around Us: images in which the subject is visible to the naked eye
  • Visualizing the Unseen: images captured with the use of optics that extend beyond what the eye can see, such as microscopes and telescopes, or models of scientific phenomena or processes or interpretations of scientific information

Images will be evaluated based on scientific significance, originality and artistic and visual impact as well as on their connection to your research or scholarship. Entries for 2024 should have been created no earlier than 2021. 

The top prize will be an iPad!

Entries, which should be submitted by using this form, are due Feb. 23.

Contest winners will be announced during Binghamton University Research Days in April 2024.
