This year again we are organizing the QCBS photo contest that will take place during the symposium in December! It’s time to share beautiful pictures taken during your hard work, and have a chance to win one of our sweet photo-contest prizes.

What is your research about? What unforgettable moments have you experienced on your educational journey? What did you discover? Time to dig through your photo archives so that you can share your story with us.


Prizes will be awarded for the top photo of each of these 3 categories:

  • Nature: from micro to macro, show us the beauty of your system!
  • At work: on your computer or in the field, show us what you do!
  • Social life: Show us who enriched your life or work, whether it was unexpected research partners in an exotic land or your colleague in the next office over.
