Images of Research Competition 2023

University of Alberta graduate students made 89 submissions to the 2023 Images of Research Competition. The submissions highlighted that graduate student research at U of A happens in places both near and far, urban and rural, real and virtual: demonstrating that research knows no boundaries. The research demonstrated the breadth and creativity of students' brilliance by investigating the complexity of cultural identities, nanoparticle engineering, and how garbage might be reimagined as art, to name only a few. A multi-disciplinary five-person adjudication committee reviewed all submissions and selected winners. Additionally, the community voted for the People's Choice Award, and the winning image garnered 193 out of 1394 votes. After the Images of Research exhibition, the winning and semifinalist images are available in ERA (the University of Alberta’s digital repository).

    This is a picture of my son wearing a mask. The picture was not easy to take - he is on the autism spectrum, and not only did he find the mask irritating, but he also had a hard time holding it to his face and looking at the camera. After he agreed to have the picture taken, I knew I only had a...
