Image Contest Open Until 5/18

The (MC)2 image contest is accepting submissions once again through Monday, May 18. The contest is open to all lab users who are graduate students and post-docs at U-M or other universities. Images must be obtained using an instrument at the center and may (but do not have to be) artistically modified. While we are looking forward to the time we can return to operations and see you all back in the lab, we hope that you will share with us some of your favorite micrographs from this past year of research with us. 

Center staff will select one winning image and three runners-up to be framed and displayed in our office area. These and other images will also be featured in the ongoing photo collage in the Building 22 hallway outside the lab space. Once all spots in the collage have been filled, we plan to add an informational plaque.

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.

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.
