The CBIA Core hosted a Microscopy Image Contest earlier this year. The contest was open to all uOttawa students, staff and professors. All images alongside their descriptions were judged by a panel of uOttawa professors and staff based on visual impact, the image description and technical challenge/originality of the image.
First place was awarded to Christopher John Bergin for his image “ecrypting the Intestinal Code”.
Second place was awarded to Bensun Cambell Fong for his image “Seashore at Sunset”.
Third place was awarded to Stephanie Farhat for her image “When bones collide”.
The top three images were awarded with certificates and prizes, including a foldscope microscope to encourage and promote Open Science. The top 10 best images were also selected to be displayed as the computer wallpaper on all CBIA Core workstations for the next year.
Thank you to all who submitted image and to our judges. Special thank you to GradStudies for supplying some of the prizes for the winners.
We hope to see more amazing images in next year’s competition.
