Amateur photographers invited to snap a picture of health
Budding amateur photographers are being challenged to bring life-changing science into the community by snapping shots relating to the theme of 'Science: Hearts, Lungs and Fitness' in order to encourage people to get involved with local science research.
The initiative, led by the University, aims to showcase local talent and get people thinking about the role of science generally in society and specifically in healthcare.
The competition has been organised by the National Institute of Health Research Biomedical Research Units at the universities of Leicester and Loughborough and offers the chance for successful applicants to have their work exhibited at the Leicester People’s Photographic Gallery.
There is also a special prize for the photograph that receives the People’s Award, voted for by donors and alumni of the University of Leicester.
Those who wish to apply should send their images to email@example.com before Monday 11 May for review and selection, with successful applicants informed by Thursday 21 May whether their images have been selected for the showcase.
Images must be related in some way to the topic of ‘Science: Hearts, Lungs and Fitness’. Submission is free although artists will have to pay to have their work printed and mounted on a foam board if selected for the exhibition, at no bigger than A3 size.
