Finalists from the first-ever Image of Research juried competition can be viewed on the Office for Student Research website. Voting for the People’s Choice Award will be available April 6-8. Voting information will be available on the Office of Student Research’s Facebook page on April 6.

The competition offered students the opportunity to engage creatively with their research, share behind-the-scene views of their research process, or portray their scholarship in visual form. Students entered one compelling, static image of their research along with a 200-word narrative for review by a jury of local artists.

“This is a wonderful way to engage students in all disciplines and trigger their creativity,” said Director of the Office of Student Research Gina Hunter.

Prizes will be awarded to the top graduate and undergraduate entries, with first prizes of $250, second prizes of $150, honorable mentions of $50, and the People’s Choice award for $150. All winners will be announced April 9.

The competition is sponsored by Illinois State’s Office of Student Research, Graduate School, Milner Library, and University Galleries.

Additional information on the competition is available on the Office of Student Research website. Those with questions can contact Hunter at (309) 438-0787 or email
