The Scholarly Commons of the University Library and the Graduate College partnered to host The Image of Research, a competition celebrating the diversity and breadth of graduate student research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Graduate and professional students at Illinois were invited to submit entries consisting of an image and brief text articulating how the image relates to the research. Entries were judged by a multidisciplinary panel for connection between image, text, and research; originality; and visual impact.
Awards were presented at a reception on April 4, 2018, in conjunction with Graduate Student Appreciation Week at Illinois. Finalists are posted at grad.illinois.edu/news/2018-image-research-finalists.
The Image of Research is supported by a generous gift to the Scholarly Commons from the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics. For more information about the competition, please visit go.illinois.edu/imageofresearch.
