Subject: The research image contest Science Exposed is back! Submit yours today!

The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) has recently launched a new edition of the Science Exposed contest, in collaboration with Acfas. The research image contest challenges researchers to combine creativity and science for a chance to win cash prizes of $2,000.

The Science Exposed contest is devoted exclusively to images of scientific research, in all fields of study, but not research in the arts. We invite you to review the contest rules before capturing your image. Contest closes on Tuesday, January 30, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. (ET).

A French version of this competition, called La preuve par l'image is also organized by l'Acfas in collaboration with NSERC.
