WINNERS for the Euro-BioImaging Image Competition "Research. Captured." have now been selected!
The recent Euro-BioImaging “Research. Captured” competition was a great success! 106 entries were received across the three competition categories. Images and videos were shortlisted according to their visual impact, informative content and technical proficiency by a team of scientists and graphic designers. You can see the finalists when you scroll down. The highest scoring entries were then advertised for public vote and here are the final winners:
Biological Imaging: Daniel Gütl form IST Austria with his image Coral Reef. Scanning electron microscopy image of the surface of frozen daisy with clearly visible pollen (Bellis perennis), colored in photoshop. Image captured with Zeiss FE-SEM Merlin VP Compact in IST Austria, Klosterneuburg, 2017
Biomedical Imaging: Marco Aiello from NAPLab - IRCCS SDN, Napoli, Italy, with his image Multimodal view of the human brain. The picture shows an axial slice of the human brain with the fusion of glucose metabolism, structural anatomy and axonal pathways on as revealed, in-vivo, by [18F]-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) and diffusion tractography (DT), respectively. All modalities has been acquired in one shot, within the same session and with the same scanner (simultaneous PET/MR hybrid scanner), without requiring further processing for the alignment among different modalities. T1-weighted MR and FDG-PET are shown in grayscale and "JET" colormaps, respectively. Colors of axonal bundles revealed by DT are directionally-coded. Image captured with Simultaneous PET/MR scanner; Biograph mMR, Siemens in Naples, 2017
Video: Matyas Molnar from BioVis platform, Uppsala University, Sweden, with his video Zebrafish development. This time-lapse video shows zebrafish development from the first day to the second day after fertilization (full video follows development for three days, but only the first day is show n here to meet the 30 sec requirement of the contest). A whole 3D dataset of the embryo was captured every two minutes and rendered into maximum intensity projection frames for the video. One second in the video corresponds to approximately one hour of development. White color shows blood vessel maturation, blue color shows the outline of the fish and egg (brightfield). View the full video here. Video captured with Zeiss Lightsheet Z.1BioVis platform at Uppsala University, Sweden, 2017
Congratulations to our winners who will each receive a GoPro Hero 5 Black camera + Lowepro Dashpoint AVC1 -bag.
Finalists for the Euro-BioImaging Image Competition "Research. Captured." have now been selected!
The recent Euro-BioImaging “Research. Captured” competition was a great success! Total of 106 entries were received across the three categories; Biological Images (cells/tissues), Biomedical Images (entire organisms, organs), Biological and biomedical videos. A big thanks to all those who entered the competition!
After a very difficult shortlisting by imaging specialist and graphic designers, the highest scoring entries are now being published for public vote. Now is your chance to decide the final winners! Click here to vote!
Biological Imaging Finalists
Biomedical Imaging Finalists
Euro-BioImaging Image Competition "Research. Captured." How often do you look at a scientific image or video and think “Wow!”?
For the Euro-BioImaging team this happens a lot and we often say that biological and biomedical research produces the most amazing pieces of art!
Imaging in life science research is not only essential for progress, innovation and healthcare but it also shows us the hidden beauty inside all living organisms. We would like to “capture” some of these incredible images and videos from the research community and display these on our new website and communication materials.
“Research. Captured” is the Euro-BioImaging image and video competition designed to publicise your scientific artwork; show us the beauty of life that your research has uncovered in cells, tissues, plants and living beings!
Categories and prizes
You will be able to submit images to three categories:
Biological Images (cells/tissues)
Biomedical Images (entire organisms, organs)
Biological and biomedical videos
Images and videos will be shortlisted according to their visual impact, informative content and technical proficiency by a team of scientists and graphic designers. The final winners of each category then will be selected by public vote. Content that has been modified (eg. Pseudo-coloured) to look like art is also eligible to apply. Afterall, life is art!
Winners from the three competition categories will receive a GoPro Hero 5 Black camera + Lowepro Dashpoint AVC1 -bag, as well as lots of publicity from Euro-BioImaging (if you wish!). This is an opportunity for your research to become part of the Euro-BioImaging story!
