OBI Science Image Contest

This contest is open to the University of Oulu and Oulu University Hospital community. Participating picture(s) may depict objects or phenomena from any discipline and instrument (microscope, telescope, medical imaging, photography, etc...) somehow linked to science or nature. Artistic impressions, renderings, reconstructions, models and mixed techniques are also welcome. Doctoral students can get 0.2 ECTS points for participating in the contest.


Submitted entries are judged by an independent panel of experts on the basis of originality, informational content, technical proficiency and aesthetic impact. The panel selects 10 images from entries to the finals. These pictures will be printed out and a finalist gallery will be put on display during the OBI Day.  During the exhibition OBI Day participants will vote for the winner of the OBI Science Image Contest 2018 and three most voted images will be awarded at the end of the day.
