Fall Image Contest Open

(MC)2 invites users to submit to our fall image contest between now and Tuesday, November 19. The contest is open to all graduate students and post-docs at U-M or other universities. Images must be obtained using an instrument at the center and may be artistically modified if you choose.  

As we have previously, center staff will select one winning image and three runners-up to frame and display in our office area. Others may also be featured in the ongoing photo collage in the hallway outside the (MC)2 office. Once the collage has been filled, we plan to add an informational plaque.

The first-place winner will also receive a $50 gift card to a local restaurant of their selection, and runners-up $25 gift cards.

Please upload the highest quality image you can with regard to file size, bit depth, and resolution. Preferred image width is 1024 px or above and in .tif format. You are welcome to submit multiple entries if you would like, and we will automatically include all non-winning entries from past contests for consideration.

All submissions should include the following:

  • A title for the image
  • A clear and detailed legend
  • A short paragraph describing the scientific context
  • Explanation of any artistic modification of the image (if relevant)

Participants grant the center permission to use their images in the future in various forms, such as brochures, educational materials for other users, or featuring on our website or other media.
