Photo Contest

This Year, the PhD students in Physics are pleased to announce a Science photo contest "Edges of Science" to showcase the unique and fascinating scientific adventures of the PhD, Master degree students and researchers of the Departments of Physics, Mathematics, Civil, Environmental and Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, FBK, CIBIO, ECT*.

Through this contest, we intend to discover original thoughts and creative expression!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Let's see if it's true!

The three categories on which the contest is centered:

  1. Life of the scientist: expectations and reality: photos that illustrate some unexpected results of your research activity and relationship with other scientists in the laboratory. Misfortune or success in the work that you are performing.
  2. At the edge of discovery: how do you express your success in research or studying (experiments, examination, conference), with who do you share your emotions.
  3. Research at the mountains: photos that demonstrate your participation in the life of the University of Trento in Povo and Mesiano.

You think you have what it take to capture a winning shot? Then enter the contest and don’t forget to make your shot as striking and memorable as possible!

What to win: the winner photo will be printed and hanged on the wall of the University.
