In the department of Molecular Biology & Genetics (PrF, JU) we have since 2011 ran an Scientific Image competition. This year we have decided ton open the competition to images generated throughout the year (2022) to the whole Faculty.
There are two categories and each comes with a 3000 Kc first prize!:
i. The Scientific Merit Category - typifying a major research break through from the 2022.
ii. The Aesthetic Category - that does what it says on the tin (should be easy on the eye and open to all sorts of artistic licence - people are free to release their inner Surrealist and go crazy with Photoshop).
The prizes will be awarded at the beginning of summer semester, according to the number of likes on FB page combined with the votes of the judges.
